The Lancaster Community Library serves as an important place for young adults to advance their education and enjoy reading and relaxing with a good book. Our Young Adult Room has books appropriate for readers 12 to 17 years old. The room has computers with filtered high-speed Internet connection, Microsoft Office software, and other tools to assist with research, including:
Find It Virginia (an extensive periodicals database) Grolier Online
A six-week program designed to make reading fun for our 13-17 year old readers. There’s also a program for younger children!
If you are at least 11 years old, you qualify to volunteer at the Library in the children's room. Your duties will include putting away children's books (easy reading, fiction and non-fiction), assisting patrons with book selections, and engaging in preparation work for upcoming programs.
If you are 14 years old, you also have the option of being an Independent Specialty Volunteer. You may target one type of Library service that you enjoy doing and perform that duty monthly at a time convenient for you and library staff. Independent volunteers will also be needed for special summer programs, family evening programs, and any events that may draw a large crowd.
If you are 16 years old and older you can volunteer for any of the tasks listed above, and you will be given the opportunity to learn to work at the circulation desk.
