Volunteers needed

The Handley Regional Library System is looking for teen volunteers this summer.

Consider becoming a volunteer at your local library!

There are so many benefits of volunteering, and here are just a few of them: You are giving back to your community, boosting your resume, learning new things and make new friends.

Although volunteering can be hard work at times, it is super fun, especially at the library.

You’ll be able to help librarians create displays and run fun programs, and you may even become a puppeteer!

To learn more about volunteering at the Handley, Bowman, or Clarke branches, please visit https://www.handleyregional.org/volunteer-library.
