Teens are encouraged to volunteer at Worthington Libraries this summer.
By becoming a Volunteen, teens can help younger children improve their reading skills, give back to the community, work in a fun environment and boost their job and college applications.
To be eligible, teens must be at least 12 years old or entering the seventh grade this fall. They must also attend one orientation session.
Those attending are asked to bring a tentative summer schedule, so they can sign up for shifts.
