Calling Tweens and Teens to Volunteer! 

Volunteer at the library during the Summer Reading Program! For every 10 hours you volunteer, you get a gift card! In order to volunteer, we need you to sign-up at the library & attend one orientation session.  Orientations will be held on May 30 at 2:00 p.m. or May 31 at 11:00 a.m.  If neither of these times work, contact Abby at asitzmann@orangecitylibrary.org or by calling the library.
