If you are looking to earn volunteer experience this summer, consider becoming a Summer Desk Assistant at the library. Summer Desk Assistants volunteer for two hours a week during the summer and help the Children's and Young Adult Departments with the Summer Reading Challenge.
Summer Desk Assistant Applications will be available on April 1, 2015. Space is limited and applicants will be screened. If you have any questions please contact the Young Adult desk at 814-3983.
April is National Poetry Month, and the YA Department is celebrating by highlighting several remarkable poetry anthologies and authors! Grab a book from our poetry display, and check out the "Poet Tree" that features verses from Edgar Allan Poe, to Maya Angelou, to Li Bai, and more!
Look for YA staff in the Carmel High School Media Center on Friday, May 1 during the school day for the Creative Writing Con. Meet four authors who will guide you through an interactive gallery walk of writing activities to unleash your creativity.
This Teen Library Council (TLC) meeting is open to any current TLC member that still needs to fulfill the new "promote the library" requirement for continued membership.
Guess which book is inside the container on the Young Adult Desk during April and you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a prize.
The TLC is a select group of up to 50 students in grades 7-12 who meet monthly to discuss books, movies, and films.
The TVC is for teens in 6 - 12 grade. The library uses teen volunteers in a variety of activities and for many different programs.
