Junior Volunteers Club
The Junior Volunteers meet each Thursday at 3:15pm during the school year. The members put on plays for younger kids and help with children's programs. In the summer the Junior Volunteers run the reading club booth for the younger kids, help with Harry Potter day and building the Library's 4th of July float. Junior volunteers must have finished the 5th grade to join. Applications to join the Junior Volunteers are available at the Children's and Teen reference desks.
 
Annual Programs
Several annual programs are held all through the year. They include plays by the Junior Volunteers, Pooh Day, the Mother Daughter Tea, Father and Son Huck Finn Day, The Halloween Party, the Kid's New Years Party and many others. Check the library calendar for dates.
 
Summer Reading Club
The Summer Reading Club in the children's library is for all children through the 5th grade. (Students who have completed the 5th grade may join the Teen Reading Club). Prizes are awarded to all kids for books read, those who can read and those who are read to. Children come to the library to make oral reports on their books and receive incentives.
 
Summer Programs
Twice weekly during the summer reading club a program is offered for children at the library. Programs include puppet shows, animal shows, magic, games, movies, and building our parade float for the 4th of July Parade. The summer newsletter is produced in May and details all the programs scheduled for the summer.
