Teenagers aged (15 and above) are invited to become volunteers at the Studio City Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. A training workshop will be given on Saturday, January 15, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The library is located at 12511 Moorpark St. at the corner of Whitsett Ave. A minimum of thirty hours of volunteer work will be expected for those, who join this program. Many schools have a requirement that students must complete a Community Service commitment before one is allowed to graduate. Participation in this library club allows that to happen.
To participate, stop in at the library, complete an application, and take a simple test. Parental approval is needed for any teen to help the library. For further information, call the library at (818) 755-7873 and speak to the Young Adult Librarian.
