Teen Summer Reading

Volunteers Needed!

Are you a teen who wants to give back to the community you love? Are you in a club that asks you to volunteer in order to fulfill a requirement? Are you just crazy about Thomas Ford? Then look no further.

STARTING MAY 1 you can find a volunteer form here or at the Library. Once it’s filled out and signed by a parent or guardian, return it to the library.

Please note that unlike previous summers, all volunteers are required to attend one of three orientations at the library. Training will consist of food and a presentation by one of your favorite librarians.

See you soon!
