Want to be part of a program at Milton Public Library? Do you have a skill, talent, or passion for a topic and wish to share with others? We at the library love to encourage community members to share their time and knowledge with others. We would be thrilled to work with you to schedule a one-time program or a series of workshops.
We are open to anything from STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), to author visits, informational presentations, discussion panels, hands-on workshops, demonstrations, animals, and more. You have an idea? Let’s talk about i
TUTOR AND STUDY GROUP HELPER
The library is looking to launch a Teen Tutoring & Study Group for those in grades 7-12. This will be a teen-led group with teen volunteers on hand to provide tutoring, studying help, or support to their peers. Meetings are tentatively scheduled for every Tuesday from 4:00 to 7:00 starting October 3, but that will depend on the availability of volunteers. If you’re interested in being a group helper, you’re not required to attend weekly, but you’re encourage to participate in at least one group meeting a month. Time spent as a helper will count towards volunteer and Silver Cord credit.
SPORTS SHORTS INTERVIEW
Ashlee would love to interview student athletes at the Milton Middle School and Milton High School for a segment of the library’s podcast, Check Out MPL, called Sports Shorts.
TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (TAB)
The Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens in grades 7-12 that help decide teen programming and services at the library. TAB typically meets the 4th Monday of each month at 5:00 p.m. for approximately an hour. TAB is responsible for the annual Library Lope fun run, the summer murder mystery, and other small fundraisers.
We currently have no openings at this time.
RED CROSS YOUTH CLUB
Are you interested in learning how to help others and improve the community? Are you looking to gain Silver cord hours through various ways? The Milton Red Cross Club is an extension of our local Red Cross unit and involves multiple service projects, fundraising, helping with humanitarian crisis’, and overall volunteering for the better good of our community. Through our mission-related activities, we strive to make our community a better place!
The Red Cross Youth Club will resume in September for the 2023-2024 school year. If interested in being a part of the club, please email Ashlee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve brought back a service from many years ago called Dial-A-Story! With Dial-A-Story, there is a dedicated phone number you can call to hear staff members, community members, and others read stories, tell jokes, share Milton’s history, and more. The selections will change each month! We want to give everyone the opportunity to be a part of the library and record a story. Teens who record and edit their story will earn volunteer credit.
If interested in recording a story for our Dial-A-Story service, please email Ashlee at email@example.com.
LITTLE OWL/WISE OWL READING PROGRAM
Teens in grades 7-12 are paired up with younger readers in grades 1-3 for weekly one-on-one reading and the opportunity to create their own picture ebook. Teen participants will earn volunteer hours.
- The Little Owl/Wise Owl Reading Program will retun in the summer of 2024.
Are you a great listener? Do you like helping younger children build confidence in reading? Sign up to be an On Call Reading Buddy! With this program, teens will be paired up with younger readers that may be struggling, like reading with others, or whose parents wish to give them more opportunities to read, especially with a mentor. With your name on the list, you will be contacted when a young reader is ready to read. You will work with the reader’s parent/guardian to determine the best times to meet, or for how long. Reading Buddies will be able to earn volunteer credit as well.
