Teens Plan Activities

[Sept. 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.

For more information contact Louella Moreland, Youth Services Librarian, Lincoln Public Library, 725 Pekin Street, Lincoln, IL 62656 or call 217-732-5732.
