Caddy Instruction for Country Clubs

Work in a country club this summer! Larry Regan, a registered Boy Scout golf merit badge instructor and long-time caddy, presents a free three-evening class for prospective caddies. Mr. Regan will teach the students the rules and strategies of the game, as well as etiquette of caddying, for the benefit of boys and girls looking for summer employment as caddies. The class is limited to 30 students from seventh grade to college age. Register online, or call the Youth Services Department for more information.

Sorry! We had to cancel this month's Late Night

Wish we didn't have to, but tonight's Late Night is cancelled because we couldn't find enough adult volunteers.

We really want to continue running Late Night every month! If you know an adult who likes Middle-School kids as much as we do, and wants to help us keep this great program going, tell that person to give us a call and volunteer. It's just a few hours once a month, and for a really worthy cause!

Our volunteers deserved a party, and they got it!

About 30 kids, a few adults, and the entire Youth Services staff turned out Friday night after the library closed to celebrate the end of another successful Summer Reading Program! We ate junk food (including some pretty good pizza from Paisan), played games, and raffled off the coveted and highly symbolic trench coat. Plus everyone got thank-you gifts from a very grateful Head of Youth Services (me).

What would we do without our volunteers? I have no idea, and hope I never have to find out! See photos from the party on our Flickr account by clicking here.
