Calling All Teens

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Summer getting a bit long? Teen summer volunteers at the library have lots of opportunities to work with kids and help with programs at each of the KDL branches. A few comments:

“I love to see the smiles on their faces when the little kids turn in their completed reading logs and get a prize.”
“It’s lots of fun to help with the programs… especially the food programs.”
“We get first chance to play with the animals at the petting zoo and pet show.”

KDL branches register teens in May, so if this summer seems to be dragging, keep us in mind for next year  We love to have you!

Favorite Teen Volunteer books this summer include:

Why Is Snot Green and Other Extremely Important Questions (and Answers) by Glenn Murphy

 

     The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

 

Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

 

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Along for the Ride

 

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

“Stay Loose – Read With A MOOSE!”

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Each year the Michigan Reads! program, sponsored by Target, chooses one great kids book and encourages families, caregivers, teachers, and librarians to read it together with all Michigan kids from birth through grade school age. The choice for 2012 is Moose on the Loose by Kathy-Jo Wargin, a 2009 book from Sleeping Bear Press. Share your love for reading with a child and help them develop vocabulary, imagination, oral skills and a lifelong love of reading. What could possibly happen when you have a Moose on the Loose????
