Teens will participate in a resume building program and an interview skills workshop. 

Some of the tasks are: 

  • Tutoring 
  • Demonstrate STEM kits 
  • Create book lists online 
  • Put up book displays 
  • Assist in leading gaming tournaments  
  • Read books and write book reviews, and/or video game and film reviews 
  • Assist in leading gaming programs in some locations. 
  • Create a program that interests you. 
  • Create posts for Middletown  
  • Help with programming, College “Meet and Greets”, Intergenerational book clubs 

The volunteer program runs year-round; in the fall, spring, and in the summer. Interested teens should reach out to Wendy, the Youth Services Librarian,  at 401-846-1573 ext. 3
