z_cust_teens.png A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen - Submit an article for Volunteer Hours! Remind Me about this Event 3 Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.  

Age: Must be between grades 7-12

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval. 

Limit of two submissions per person. 

Submission: Please submit your article through this Google Form

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

The Library Book by Susan Orlean

On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. By the time the fire was extinguished, it had consumed 400,000 books and damaged 700,000 more. But more than 30 years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library - and if so, who? Orleans also traces the history of libraries in the United States, and the often quirky individuals who were the predecessors of today’s professional librarians.

Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor, Library Headquarters 

The books are real; the discussion is virtual. Place a hold and pick up the selection at your local branch.
