Teen Service Club is back!
Henderson Libraries is excited to announce that the Teen Service Club is back for youth ages 11-17. Beginning September 1st, kids and teens interested in earning volunteer service hours can stop by any Henderson Libraries location to pick up a kit.
September's project is making "thank you" notes for healthcare workers in Southern Nevada. These notes will be dropped off at Henderson Hospital and other Valley Health System locations. All levels of employees at these institutions have been working hard to keep our families and neighbors healthy during this unprecedented health crisis, and this is a small way to demonstrate our gratitude.
Use your artistic skills to create a meaningful and decorative "thank you" note. Please take your time to make this project extra special. You can color, collage, decoupage, paint, and write a message of thanks and positive support for the person who will receive your note card. (*Important: please do not sign cards with personal names.) Each kit includes materials to make 4 note cards with some decorative items to help get you started. Kids and teens will earn 15 minutes of service time for each note card completed. Turn in completed note cards by September 30th, 2020.
Special Instructions for 2020: Kits will be distributed via the Henderson Libraries curbside pickup service -- 1 kit per teen. Completed projects should be returned via curbside pickup, with completed note cards in the bag with a return slip filled out and attached (the slips are included in the kits). Another kit may be taken upon return of the previous kit. All completed projects will be held until September 30th, and service time will be calculated based upon the return slips for each participant. A letter detailing the service hours will be sent via email to the participant after September 30th.
Please call Henderson Libraries with any questions regarding the project details.
