Redwood City, CA - November 5 , 2004 - The Redwood City Public Library offers many free enrichment programs and volunteer opportunities for teens.
- A special, first- time-offered workshop entitled “College Track Preparation: Get a Head Start on Planning for College” takes place on Wednesday, November 10 2004 at 7:00 pm, in the Teen Homework Center located at the downtown library. The program, meant to encourage teens to prepare for college early, is targeted for students in 6th and 7th grades. Parents are invited to accompany their children.
- The library is planning a new teen/student space at the downtown library and is seeking assistance from teenagers. It’s an opportunity to help design a comfortable and welcoming space for teens in which to study, learn, and socialize. Teens volunteering for this project are eligible to earn two hours of community service. Monthly meetings are scheduled from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on November 16; January 11; February 8; March 8; and April 5. Please contact Diane Casey at 780-7035 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
