Teen Space

Looking for Volunteer Hours and want to help improve services for you and your peers?

Join our new Teen Advisory Board!
We value the voices and feedback of the young adults in the community and want to hear their ideas for what programs and services we should offer.  We are meeting once a month for three months starting in June on the fourth Thursday.  Thereafter, we will meet quarterly.  Positions on this board are open to students entering 7th grade and older and you will earn community service hours for your participation.  If you are interested in joining please reach out to Mrs. Burt at sburt@ledyard.lioninc.org or register here for our first meeting on June 25th at 3:00 via Zoom.


Teen Volunteering Program

Looking for more ways to get volunteer hours?  With the help of the Teen Advisory Board we have come up with some fun ways for you to earn those hours even as we are social distancing.  If you have any questions or would like to participate please contact Mrs. Burt at sburt@ledyard.lioninc.org

Summer 2021: Help with programs, shelf read, or help put together Grab and Go crafts.  Contact Mrs. Burt for more information.

One Bag at a Time Clean Up Initiative:  We all can work together to make Ledyard and Gales Ferry better, cleaner places.   For every large bag of trash you pick up you will receive 1 hour of volunteer time.  Send a photo of you and your bag(s) of trash to Mrs. Burt.  Please include your full name in the email.

Instagram Book Reviews:  Post a book review on Instagram!  Your review must include: 1. A photo of the book   2. The author/title in the caption   3.  A reason you are recommending the book  4. Tag the Ledyard Public Library’s Instagram account @ledyardpubliclibrary.  Each review is worth one hour of service.  If we like your review we may share it on our page!


Book Club

Calling all book lovers!  We have a teen book club as a way to connect and share our love of a good book.  We are reading Slay by Brittney Morris.  The book will be available to pick up in June and we will meet on the patio at Bill Library on Tuesday, June 27th at 4:00 p.m. to discuss.


Staying Well Resources

The following sites offer information about health information and resources as a research and informational service. Obtaining information about a medical problem on-line is no substitute for seeking one-on-one advice from a health care provider who can assess your health history, your current condition, and your on-going needs.
