Come to Volunteen Training! Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, from 3-4pm. Volunteens only need to attend one training session. If you cannot attend either session, please see a member of the Children's staff to set up another training time.
Youth who are 11 years and older, and interested in being a "Volunteen" in the Children's Place of the Wood County District Public Library, should complete the Volunteen Application. The form is attached at the bottom of this page or can be picked up at the Children's Place desk. Applications are accepted any time during the year. Please return completed forms to the Children's Place desk.
Serving the library as a Volunteen is a great way to meet new friends, build a resume, and discover new books, audio, and movies!
For more information, please call the WCDPL Children's Place at 419-352-8253.
