Volunteer with Youth Services!

Help mentor young children through our summer reading game. Great public service experience and fun! If you complete at least 10 hours of service you will be invited to our summer reading volunteer pizza party on August 5th.

All Summer Reading Volunteers need to attend a mandatory orientation session.  The final orientation date is scheduled for June 16 .

Another volunteer opportunity is “Book Buddies” (reading one-on-one with a child).  Ask about it at the youth services desk or call: 847-663-6622

“Through the Ages” by Michelle Kleine
“How to be a good friend?” by Dayana Sheytanova
