Do you know a teen entering grades 7-12 who is looking for a fun way to earn service hours, get job experience, and make a difference in our community this summer? Applications for our VolunTEEN program are now available online at volunteen.ippl.info and at the Kids & Teens Ask Us Desk.
We are seeking adults who would like to share stories from their youth as part of our Memory Drive program. Memory Drive is an intergenerational program in which teens will interview adults to document stories from their school years. Using A/V equipment, teens will create and edit a multimedia clip for each interview, ultimately creating a digital story collection that will be shared on the library’s website and social media pages. The program will run through Aug. 8, and participants and their families will be invited to a special screening of the interview clips in August. Interested participants can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (630) 887-8760 ext. 245. This project is cosponsored by the Rotary Club of Darien.
