Join the new Teen Service Club!

Our first meeting will be Thursday, January 11, from 3-4pm. We'll brainstorm club names and service projects. Should we concentrate on making the library a better place? Should we educate the community on global warming? Do we want to help the elderly? Younger children? The homeless? The second meeting will be Thursday, February 8, from 3-4pm. We'll try to elect club officers and begin work on our project or projects of choice. Remember, this is a great way to help the community and beef up your college application form!
