Identifying Native Plants and Flowers
This Thursday Aug. 21, 6:00 pm
presented by the Blanco Co. Master Gardeners
  Looking for a new and interesting adventure in your life and interested in contributing to your Johnson City community?  Are you a retired adult, a professional, or a student with a little time to give – as little as an hour or two per month? Here is a special event for YOU:

You are cordially invited to an informal Volunteer Fair at the Johnson City Library on Thursday afternoon, September 4, from 4:00-6:00pm.  Light refreshments will be served at this come-and-go event where you can discuss volunteer opportunities with Maggie Goodman, Library Program Director.
The Library is currently looking for people who would be interested in one or more of these areas:
·         Tutors for all grades including high school.  The need is especially great for algebra and geometry.
·         Coaches and reviewers to work with the Discovery Academy Lego robotics teams this fall. No experience is necessary.  The library will provide any training.
·         People who have expertise in areas such as the sciences, travel, crafts or trades, or musicians who would be interested in being part of a program.
·         Those with computer skills who could teach a class or two.
·         Volunteers to work with the Library’s “Book Adventures with a Buddy” program for elementary students.  These volunteers listen non-judgmentally to children read with the goal of improving reading skills.
In addition to these specific areas we can help you find a way to utilize your particular interest or talent.   Come to the Library on September 4 and explore all the ways you might be part of your community to connect with each other, grow and learn, and have lots of fun.  Thank you all for your interest in the Johnson City Library.
