NEWTTS–Teen Volunteer Hours

Do you need volunteer hours but are short on time? Consider joining the NEWTTS (new teen titles) club. The NEWTTS club allows busy teens to earn volunteer hours by reading and reviewing new teen newtt-circletitles.  Help decide which titles to purchase for the teen room and take a title home to read and review before it hits the shelves.  Teens can work at their own pace, but must return new titles with a review in a timely fashion.  Ages 12 & up.
