The Junior Friends of the Gates Public Library are a high-energetic group of volunteers, ages 9-16, that meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 4:00pm to 5:00pm and help the library with different activities such as book sales, parties and many more exciting things. The group also gets involved with community service activities. Come join the group for a good time, you'll be glad that you did! To join, simply fill out the form below. You will be contacted via e-mail to be reminded of upcoming meetings.
Teen/Tween Take & Makes
Each month a new Take & Make craft is set out in the Teen Services area. Drop by and pick up an envelope containing all you'll need for a 'do-at-home' craft. Basic supplies such as glue and scissors will not be included in the craft envelopes. Pick them up early so you don't miss out! Take & Make crafts are free, courtesy of the Friends of the Gates Public Library!
