We're Starting a Teen Advisory Board!

Want a leadership opportunity that will look great on college applications and resumes? Teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join our Teen Advisory Board (TAB). This is an opportunity to have direct impact on what programs Messenger Library offers. The TAB will meet once a month to assist with Library programming and planning. We heard a rumor that there will be fun activities and snacks at the meetings as well. Go to our Teen Volunteer page for a link to the application. Fill out the application, and please return it to the Youth Services Department by August 31, 2015.

Get ready for the new school year and make sure you have the coolest card of all -- a library card! Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Messenger Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card. 

Your library card gives access to books, e-books, reference resources, homework help, and other tools you need to succeed. Visit the library during September, either in person or through the library’s website, and sign up for a $50 gift card give-away!
