Middle School Community Service 

Due to the increasing popularity of the middle school community service at the library, we have restructured the program to improve the experience and increase productivity. Rather than week-by-week drop-in program, we will be offering three sessions of community service throughout the school year. The students will meet five times during each session for a total of 5 community service hours per session. Because space is limited, we are requiring that students register for a whole session and ask that students plan to attend at least 4 of the 5 dates during the session. Students will work on a variety of projects in a fun, supervised social setting.  Once the work is done, students will play games, work on tech projects, do crafts, socialize and have snacks.  We make work fun!

Spring Session
