TEEN TEAM:

Are you in Jr. High or High School interested in helping the library and earning community service hours and experience?  Have you “graduated” from the Jr. Friend group but still want to help the library and our community?

If your answer is yes, contact Ms. Lisa to become part of our  Teen Team!  You don’t have to attend any meetings, or  commit to any specific projects.  We’ll let you know when we need help, and you can decide if you can be available. Examples: Moving books – either to the basement, or from the basement to our book sale, sorting and boxing books for the September book sale, shoveling the front walkway in winter, weeding gardens, baking for bake sales, donating hand-made items to our Holiday Fair, transporting donated books we can’t use to charities, workshops for younger kids, workshops for seniors regarding technology, and more!  We are always open to hearing your ideas as well!  You may even earn a Plumb Library Tshirt for your efforts!

Contact  Ms Lisa  at 508-763-8600 or lfuller@sailsinc.org  to discuss your availablity, interests, and skills. We will add your name to our Teen Team List list and call or text you when service opportunities arise!

 

Book Buds for Teens (6th grade and up): 

The Junior Friends created a monthly book club, Book Buds, in August 2018 for members. As of 2020, Book Buds grew and  now welcomes any child/young adult who is interested.  There are 3 different clubs – Book Buds Teen for 6th graders and up, Book Buds Tween for 3rd – 5th graders, and Book Buds Jr. for children aged 6-7.  Book Buds meet once per month.  Although it is subject to change, Book Buds Teen meets the first Friday of a month at 4 p.m.  Members bring a book they have recently read or are currently reading to share with the group. Registration is required via the Plumb Library Event Calendar.  Any details specific to the monthly meeting will be noted on the event calendar post. Snacks are served and lively discussion occurs!
