attitude, be respectful of others, and be willing to have fun and make new
Why be a Junior Friend?
You should be a Junior Friend if you like to work hard, read, and have a lot of fun. When you are a Junior Friend you get to give to the community in a variety of ways, but once you are done working hard, then you also get to go on field trips (like to the movies if a book becomes a movie), get invited to library sleepovers, get to play our Wii & Xbox on gaming nights, and get tons of computer time on our library computers.
How do you become a Junior Friend?
