A Nutmeg Nominee Book Discussion Group is held once a month with pizza or dessert. Members read a book, discuss it over a meal or treat, and collect raffle prizes at the end of the hour. Registration into this group is by e-mail only, as soon as possible, to Mrs. McNulty at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of the attendees are 7th and 8th graders.
A separate summer reading club is also held for all teenagers. Check every June with a librarian as soon as school is out.
For ages 14 and up:
Pages (book shelving) are hired at the library starting at age 14. Applications can be printed out from the town of Avon website, and by alerting a librarian that an application is being filed. Job openings are very limited.
TAB members, Kristen and Priyanka, design the upstairs monthly teen bulletin board.
The Teen Advisory Board
The Teen Advisory Board is an opportunity for High School students to get involved in the community and use their pop culture knowledge in expanding the library's collection and creating new programs. Members of TAB assist librarians in various tasks that include music and DVD selection, book selection, book reviews, and program selection. If you are interested in joining TAB, please contact Mrs. Karen McNulty at email@example.com, or Miss Amber Lansing at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also forward any questions or recommendations to our Teen Services e-mail at AvonTeens@gmail.com.
If you are interested in applying to TAB, print out and fill in the Teen Volunteer Application Form and hand deliver it to the Avon Library's Children's Room, FAX it to us at 675-6364, or mail it to: Children's Department, Avon Free Public Library, 281 Country Club Rd., Avon, CT 06001.
Middle School and High School students are also given the opportunity to serve as a volunteer in the Children's Room or Young Adult Department. Check our Volunteers Page for information on how you can become a volunteer.
We do offer "Summer Only" volunteer hours.
