“The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.” ― Ta-Nehisi Coates

Community Service Opportunities for Teens at Mattituck-Laurel Library

  •   Read any book from our teen collection and write a brief summary and review of the book in exchange for one hour of community service. See Sara in the Children’s room for the appropriate forms required for this.
  •   Help us clean toys in the children’s room in exchange for community service. This opportunity is offered by appointment only. See Youth & Parenting Services to set up an appointment.
  •   Kindness Counts TAB meetings – Come to our community-service based TAB meetings. We will do one community-service based project at each meeting. See newsletter for specific dates, times and projects.
  •   Rock Art – Bring us painted rocks for our rock garden to earn one hour of community service. 1 hour of community service will be given for every 2 rocks donated. See Sara if you need rocks.
  •   Community Service Bingo – Complete tasks on our community service Bingo board in any row, column or diagonal. Take pics of yourself doing each item and then tag us on our Instagram page. Receive one hour of community service. Limit one Bingo board per teen.
  •   Decorate book ends – Use acrylic paint to decorate book ends for our teen space. You can be as abstract or concrete in your design as you’d like! See Youth & Parenting Services for more information.
  •   Teens Teach – Do you have a unique skill or talent that you‘d like to share with your friends? Run a program at our library to teach them how to do it! The library will pay for all materials. All you need to do is plan and implement with help from Sara, the teen librarian. Community service hours will be given for the program, as well as time spent planning it.
