Teens Plan Activities
13, 2004] LINCOLN -- Lincoln Public Library has an
activity YAC (Young Adult Council) group that meets to plan teen
activities at the Library. This is the beginning of their third year
of planning fall, spring, and summer activities that are open to all
community teens. A meeting will be held September 21 at 3:30 PM in
the Library Annex for any teens wishing to become involved.
There is also a Youth Volunteer Program that began last winter.
Teens submit an application with a letter of recommendation from a
teacher; go through an interview, orientation, training, and
probationary process; and work about 1-2 hours per week in the Youth
Services Department at the Library. Three teens have been
outstanding in their service to this program and are still active
this fall: Smara Shane, Brittany Uhlry, and Alison Kessinger. There
have been up to 8 teens active in the program and the library hopes
to take on more volunteers this fall.
