Summer Reading Volunteer Orientation
Teens, help make the Summer Reading Program a winner. To qualify as a Summer Reading Volunteer, attend one the training sessions on June 4 at 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm or on June 8 at 5:00 pm. Students donate two hours or more each week during the summer and earn service credit. At the end of the summer, volunteers receive a certificate listing the number of hours volunteered and a Thank-You party.

History Docent Orientation
Sign up now to become a Teen History Docent this summer. Orientation will take place on June 4 at 1:00 pm.
Learn about Sierra Madre’s unique local history, develop public speaking skills, and earn service hours. Volunteers will be trained and will give guided tours through Sierra Madre’s history using digital storyboards. Tours take place in the Library’s Local History Room and the Richardson House Museum. Teens earn service credit with the Docent program.

Teens interested in either or both summer volunteer opportunities can get an application for the program on the library’s website www.cityofsierramadre.com/departments/library or stop by the Library to pick up a copy.
