Libraries


Do you enjoy going to your local library? We spoke with Georgean Johnson-Coffey at the Volunteer Services Department at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana. About 30 percent of the volunteers at the library are between the ages of 11 and 17. They work in a variety of positions including computer center helper, studio camera operator, and children's program assistant. You can volunteer to be part of the Young Adult Advisory Council and have your voice heard in what services and materials are offered to young adults. Ms. Johnson-Coffey says, "My priority is to make the best possible match of volunteer to position." Sound like a fun way to spend your summer? You will find your local library in your city or town Blue Pages, under "Libraries." Ask to speak to someone in volunteer services.
