Wii U gaming in on hold for now.
At this time the Library has no volunteer opportunities for Teens due to COVID-19. Information on our typical summer positions, our Teen Advisory Board, and community service hours can be found on our Volunteer page. We look forward to welcoming back our teen volunteers when it is safe to do so.
KIDS STORY TIME
Our Story Times employ techniques aimed at developing Early Literacy skills and enabling caregivers to reinforce the same skills at home. We are avid proponents of reading aloud to children, long past the time they have learned to read themselves. This improves listening skills, attention span, fluency, increases vocabulary and develops a love for story. These are all skills necessary for a successful school transition.
We have a sizable collection of ebooks, downloadable audio books, books on CD and PlayAway Views which offer portable audiovisual stories. We also have two Kindle Fires available for teens to use in the library. After COVID, we will have AWE Early Learning Stations which offer educational programming for ages 2 - 12 and PC and Mac computers for use by students age 12-18
