Find more suggested reads at the library! Don't forget, if Wood Library doesn't have the book, we can order for you from another library!

Have a community service requirement you have to fulfill for school? Or, maybe you just want to help out? Well, Wood Library has many volunteer opportunities available for teens. I need your help with:

Library Fundraiser Committees:
In the Library Fundraiser Committees, teens in grades 9-12 meet once a month to brainstorm and organize various events to help fund Wood Library!

  • Podcasts:
    Teens (13-17) wanted to write book, poetry, music, or movie reviews and then create a podcast to be posted on the teen blog. Or, help with the technical portion of the podcast. The more, the better!

  • Displays & Signage:
    Teens (12-17) can create displays and signs for specific events. See Jenny for signs or displays needed and to schedule a time to work.

  • Shelf Sitter:
    Adopt a shelf! Teens (12-17) will “read” the shelves of a section of the library to make sure books are in order, and will wash book covers, tape torn pages, and set aside books in need of major repair. No set schedule.

Interested? Contact Jenny Goodemote at 394-1381 or for more information!
