Teen Summer Reading Program
Take a look at all the things happening at the Library this summer!
If you will be in grade 6 or above in the fall, you can apply now to help out with our Summer Reading Program! Here's the information you need to get started! If you wish to volunteer at Gere Branch Library, you will also need this Volunteer Contract.
Creative teens advise library staff about materials, programs and services they would like to see in the library. This is your chance to make a difference! If you are interested in joining a Teen Advisory Board, please contact us at these e-mail addresses:
On Saturday September 8, 2012, current TAB members and other interested young adults met at Densmore Park to participate in the Hunger Games and find out about the different TAB groups. Here are some photos from the event.
Take a look at how members of Gere Branch Library's Teen Advisory Board have been working to make the Library better!
