Library news roundup

June 2nd, 2014 · Comments

The Greenwood Library is starting a Teen Advisory Board for teens who want to work with kids. Teenagers can earn from three to eight service learning credit hours per month. Applicants need to be at least 14 years old and already in or entering high school; artistic, like to read, write, make short videos or be interesting in helping out at library programs; be self-directed and dependable; and able to volunteer once or twice each month. Email Jennifer Bisson at Jennifer.bisson@spl.org for an application or more information.

Check out the library’s Seattle Neighborhood History Project, which has a page devoted to Phinney Ridge, including some cool old photos.

And tell the Seattle Public Library what your library means to you through its SPL Voices project, which collects personal stories and photos.

SPL Voices is produced by The Seattle Public Library with interviews recorded by StoryCorps, a national non-profit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.

All of the full-length StoryCorps recordings will be added to the Library’s special collections archive, and to The Library of Congress.
