Newport Way honored their hardworking Teen volunteers Wednesday June 30th with an appreciation party. Graciously sponsored by the Newport Way Library Association, teens enjoyed henna tattoos, button making and of course food! Teens also took this time to complete a survey giving us feedback on our volunteer program and including suggestions they felt might strengthen our program for future volunteers.
Since our re-opening last April of 2011 Newport Way has had over 45 Teen volunteers work more than 1300 hours! That is an average of 29 hours each! With many of our Teen volunteers enrolled in honor classes, school sports and clubs it's amazing they find time in their busy schedule to help out at the library. Newport Way staff is thankful for the help our volunteers contribute to our library daily, from pulling the holds list to assisting with special projects. The library is a better place thanks to their hard work. Thank you Newport Way Volunteers - we appreciate you!
