Students in grades 7-12 are welcome to join our monthly, and sometimes bi-monthly, meetings. Generally meetings are on Mondays @ 4:15pm, but this is subject to change. Meeting times will be available here on the library’s website, but members will also be emailed or texted meeting date/times as well. Members will earn volunteer hours for meetings, and will also have the opportunity to sign up to help out at special library programs (both at meetings and via email).
