Next Teen Volunteer Council

March 12, 2012

Tomorrow night is Teen Volunteer Council at the Fairmount St. Library from 5:30-7:30.  The council didn’t meet last month due to the awesome Anti-Valentine’s Day party we had, sooooooo we have some catching up to do. 

We also have a little surprise for our volunteers.  Want a hint?  It’s time to practice your victory dance

Teen programs this week…

March 7, 2011

Join us tomorrow night at the Fairmount St. library for the next Teen Volunteer Council meeting. We have lots of upcoming volunteer opportunities to tell you about and some important programming decisions to discuss. We want your input! The fun begins at 5:30.

Also, Wednesday’s ‘Get Your Game On’ program will be canceled. What?! The libraries will be CLOSED for staff in-service that day so there will be no gaming. The program will pick back up the next Wednesday–same time, same place–Fairmount St. Library from 3-5.

You know what this means don’t you??? You should come to the Teen Volunteer Council meeting tomorrow night to try and talk me into getting the video game systems out, just to see what happens…

Teen Reading Challenge Results

February 8, 2011

The Teen Reading Challenge results are in:

Highest total minutes read:  Team Rock Island

Highest average minutes read:  Team LeClaire

Special Accomplishment Award:  Team Scott County (They had 80 participants!  80!)

Congrats to all the teens across the QC-Area who participated in this year’s Teen Reading Challenge.  It’s always awesome to see so many teens supporting their libraries and read, read, reading.  DPL tried really, really hard this year to go for the big win but we just didn’t quite make it.  Perhaps next year will be our year! 

The good news for us is that we get to eat all the leftovers from the final party at tonight’s Teen Volunteer Council meeting.  Teen volunteers are powered by ice cream and sprinkles right?!

TVC meets tonight from 5:30-7:30 at the Fairmount Branch.

Teen Volunteer Council 2011 starts tomorrow!

January 10, 2011

The first Teen Volunteer Council Meeting of 2011 is tomorrow night. 

Wait.  Would that be 1/11/11???  Ooooh, we’re going to have to celebrate. 

The party, ahem, I mean MEETING starts at 5:30 at the Fairmount St. Library.  Show up.  Lend a hand.  TVC needs you!  Plus, I heard a rumor that volunteering looks good on resumes and college applications. 

I also heard a rumor that the aforementioned rumor is true…
