Summer Jobs for Teens

From the fabulous Kathleen at the Mukilteo Library:

This probably isn't news to you, but summer jobs are really hard to find. The Seattle Times reports that this may be the worst summer for finding jobs since the Great Depression in the 1930s . But even without a job, you can do important work this summer as a volunteer. Every time you volunteer in your community, you make it a better place to live for you, your family and your friends--and it looks good on your job and college applications, too!

The Sno-Isle Libraries offer many volunteer opportunities for teens; check them out at here. You could be a Book Buddy who helps a child become a better reader at the Mountlake Terrace and Mukilteo Libraries, a Gadget Coach at the Marysville Library or a member of a Teen Advisory Board at most of our libraries. There are other volunteer opportunities, too. Ask your teen librarian about ways you can help the library and make your summer a lot more interesting.
