You can register right now by clicking on the links!

 

The Volunteer Opportunities

Building a Better World can also mean helping others, which is why we are having some programs where you can earn service hours.

Teens Read the Way: You can help children (age 3 to grade 5) keep their reading skills over the summer by reading with them and doing activities each week. At the end of the 6 weeks, those who volunteered will not only receive signed volunteer service hour letters but also a reward party with pizza and a movie.

Make Hospital Pillow Cases for Kids: Make fun pillow cases for kids in Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. Not only will it be fun and bring some joy to a kid, but it will also earn you service time and you get to learn some basic sewing.

 

 

So come join us over the summer for fun programs, reading, and prizes!

Teens Read the Way Volunteer Parties!

Congrats and THANK YOU to all our teen volunteers for this year’s Teens Read the Way program. Over the past 6 weeks, you’ve bonded with and become a treasured reading mentor for children across Hancock County.

 

To celebrate a job well done we’re throwing pizza & movie parties at both Greenfield and Sugar Creek locations. Sugar Creek volunteers, your party is today (7/15), Greenfield is tomorrow (Wednesday, 7/16) starting with the s’more party @ 3pm. Help your reading buddies make s’mores and pick out a book for them to take home! Immediately following the s’more party will be our volunteer party with FREE pizza and the movies chosen by you!

Sarah, re-reading Divergent by Veronica Roth in celebration of the Divergent Lock-in on Friday!

Coming to the Divergent Lock-in?

We’re going to have an awesome time at the Divergent Lock-In THIS Friday!! We’re planning out our Faction Maze Test, fun Faction activities, notifying local pizza places that we’ll be ordering A TON of pizza – You know awesome stuff like that.

The only thing that won’t be awesome is if you forget your permission slip and end up FACTIONLESS  (i.e. you are locked out of the lock-in and have to go home)

So please remember your permission slip so you can join one of these lovely factions!

“One choice can transform you.” (Still talking permission slips! HA),

Big Screen Movie Success!

Thanks for all who came out to our 1st Movie on the Lawn! It was a beautiful night to sit outside and enjoy Back to the Future!

We’ll be showing part 2 of Movie on the Lawn on August 2 at the Sugar Creek Branch @ 8:30pm.

The world premiere of The Page Turners, a mini-movie that has been student directed, acted, and edited will be our 1st film feature. “The Page Turners” is a hilarious look at what happens when readers get sucked into a good book—literally. Our 2nd movie feature will be the movie Holes. This is a FREE event!

Hope to see you all there!
