additional opportunities for teens

Teens @ the Happy Valley Library
Looking for something good to read? The Library offers a Young Teen Collection, upstairs in the Children’s Room, and the Teen Space. The Library also offers downloadable e-books and audiobooks for free through lincc.org.

For students participating in the Oregon Battle of the Books (6th-8th-grade division), Lucky Day copies of these titles can be found in the Young Teen section. With no holds and no renewals, if a copy is available when you are in, it’s your Lucky Day!

Teen Advisory Board
Teens in 8th-12th grade are invited to help the Library plan teen programs, review teen services and promote the Library to other teens. Interested teens must complete an application. The Board meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 5-6 pm. For more information, contact Anna Bruce at 503-783-3464 or annab@happyvalleyor.gov.

Teen Volunteers
Students in grades 6th-12th can volunteer at the Library, assisting behind the scenes with craft prep and projects and with Children’s programs as activity helpers. Most volunteering happens Saturday mornings or afternoons. Students must complete a volunteer application prior to volunteering. For more information, and a complete list of possible teen volunteers opportunities, please contact library staff at 503-783-3454 or youthlibrary@happyvalleyor.gov.

Teen Tutors
We’re excited to announce that the fall teen tutor program is currently full! Students interested in participating in upcoming winter and spring sessions are invited to submit an application.

Applications can be turned in for both teen volunteers (9-12th grade) and students (K-5th grade) for the Teen Tutors program. This program matches a teen volunteer as a reading buddy with a younger student for a weekly, 30-minute reading session. For more information, please contact library staff at 503-783-3454 or youthlibrary@happyvalleyor.gov.
