Become a Library Youth Volunteer!

Volunteers Needed 
 
 
The Clayton County Library System is recruiting teens, ages 12-18 to help with the upcoming Summer Reading Program and other library activities.
 
Library Youth Volunteers help our libraries in many ways:
  •  Assisting with running the Summer Reading Program table by signing kids up and handing out incentive prizes.
  • Help keep our collections and library in order.
  • Shelving books.
  • Assisting at many library programs and events for children.
  • Preparing arts & crafts for upcoming storytimes and programs.
  • Inputting content on our TCC webpage.
  • And much more!

If you are interested in becoming a Library Youth Volunteer, then print out an application, complete it, then bring it to the library at which you are interested in volunteering.  A library staff person will contact you regarding the status of your application.

Have you seen Eclipse yet?

If you have seen Eclipse, the newest Twilight movie, and are foaming at the mouth for more of Edward, Jacob, Bella, or which ever vamp or wolfie floats your boat-check out the Twilight Graphic Novel! 

The graphic novel takes us back to the beginning. Back to when Bella leaves Phoenix and makes her way to Forks where she meets the mysterious Edward Cullen.

Okay. So I have to admit, I am a fan of the books.  The movies? Eh, I could take or leave them. I was skeptical of the graphic novel, thinking it would be too much like the movies. WOW! Was I wrong! The artwork by Young Kim is absolutely breathtaking! It is beautiful, and the story adaptation is spot on for what should be included. 

So, if you're waiting to see Eclipse, or waiting for Breaking Dawn, check out a copy.
