Want to have fun and gain valuable work experience this summer? The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library is accepting applications for the Student Summer Volunteer Program now through May 4.
Applications are available at the library branches participating in the volunteer program: Main, Madison, Bailey Cove, Gurley, Monrovia, New Hope, Bessie K. Russell and Hazel Green.
Students gain real job experience in a fun and educational environment while performing a valuable community service. Volunteers will be assisting in the Youth Services area, and they will have varied task responsibilities such as shelving books, preparing crafts, aiding teen programs, and participating in story hour at the direction of the librarian.
Participants must be at least 14 years old, have the premission of a parent or guardian and must have a genuine desire to volunteer (independent of parental consent and wishes).
Complete the application and return it to the library location at which you wish to volunteer by May 4.
Give the reference form with a stamped, addressed envelope to one of your teachers and ask him or her to fill out the form and mail it back. If you are homeschooled, please have an adult other than your parent fill out the form. Applications without teacher reference forms will not be accepted. Mail the teacher reference form by May 4 to:
