The Future of Us

What would you do if you could see into the future? What if you didn't like what you saw? Would you try to change it?

It's 1996 and Emma just got an AOL Disc for her new computer. She's excited to get an AOL account. After logging in, she sees something called Facebook. Not knowing what it is, she explores it and realizes it's her life 15 years from then.

Emma and her good friend Josh have to decide whether they should let their life play out as fate wants it or to do things differently and possibly have a different future.

Discover what happens to Emma & Josh by reading "The Future of Us" by Jay Asher (author of Thirteen Reasons Why) and Carolyn Mackler (author of The Earth, My butt & other big round things).

Volunteer Opportunities for Teens

Volunteer Opportunities
Contact: Angela Krajcar, Head of Youth Services 845-359-2244 x15
Or submit a volunteer application (available at the library’s front desk)

These are our ongoing opportunities, but occasionally, we have other small various tasks that need to be done. You must make arrangements to volunteer. Please do not show up expecting to be able to do hours on the spot. Thank you.

Teen Advisory Board
Help plan teen programs and make suggestions for the collection. Make your opinion count as you earn community service hours. Meets once a month on Friday from 3:30-4:30.

Teen Tech Tutor for Seniors Citizens
The Library is looking for teens to tutor Seniors on cell phones, using email, downloading pictures, blogs, Twitter and Facebook. Help others while earning community services hours. We are looking to host this program 1 or 2 times a month.

Summer Reading Program
During the children’s summer reading program, we are seeking assistants for Children’s programs. You might be preparing crafts, working with children or giving out prizes/stickers to children who participate in the reading club.

Shelf Reader
(Children’s and Adult sections) Methodically read the spine labels of books on the shelves in a designated area, to make sure they are alphabetized or in numerical order. Shelf readers help keep our books in good order, so patrons can find things easily. This job requires attention to detail, and skill at alphabetizing (are you good at looking up words in the dictionary?) and sequencing. This job also requires someone to offer their time at least once a week on a regular basis, even if just for an hour or so.
