SUMMER READING REGISTRATION IS HERE....online below or paper forms are available at the library....any age can sign up using online or paper!

Tails and Tales is our theme this summer, meaning it's all about animals. The program will run for six weeks and will consist of programming as well as the most important component, READING.

For Converse Library Tweens (entering sixth grade in fall), Teens and Adults, we will have bookmarks available starting June 3 where you record your reading and turn them in. Each book read is an entry into the prize drawings we will have throughout each week. Participate...we have some amazing surprises for you and something special for reading to the end of the program.

For Converse Library Kids, we will distribute reading logs and goodie bags starting June 3. Detailed plans will be coming but you can get more info by clicking the link below and REGISTERING the little ones (through entering fifth grade in the fall). We ask the kids to read a minimum of 20 minutes per day, six days out of the week. They'll come back to the library with their logs and get weekly prizes and if they stay consistent and read until the end, we have some pretty amazing prizes for them.

Library cards are required to participate (although the littlest ones can use their adults card for registration). Register HERE!

HOW SOON CAN I START?

Once we receive your paperwork, a background check will be run and as soon that is complete, we will contact you to schedule your training. We hope that will be within the week.

 IS THERE AN AGE REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER?

Well, yes and no. To come volunteer with us on your own, you must be at least 16 years old. Volunteers who are under the age of 16 are welcome with a parent or legal guardian volunteering along side of them.

WHAT WOULD I DO AT THE LIBRARY?

If you are available weekly at a consistent time, it could be shelving materials or helping at a repeating program such as Storytime or the LEGO Club.  We also need volunteers to help us with special programming.  Doing prep work for programs or displays is a great need, and that might consist of cutting out or prepping materials or pulling a book list.  Maybe you have great writing skills and would like to come in and write up some book reviews!  Artistic?  Well, we need to talk....
