Please send all the below community service activities to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com with the title “COMMUNITY SERVICE” in the subject line. Please include your first and last name, age, grade and school in your email. Please be patient as it might take a little time for us to send a virtual community service letter to document your service. If you have not received anything after 2 weeks of your submission, please feel free to contact us by email or by phone at 631-549-4411 ext. 205.
- Make a phone call (We know, so old fashioned!) to a relative or friend who is safe at home: they will appreciate it! Send us an email of when you talked, who you talked to, and about what (We don't need specific details. “Grandma and I chatted about going to school in the 1950s” is enough). You can do this twice per month for a maximum of 2 hours of community service.
- Create two Google slides recommending a book that is in the YA Library. The first slide should have the Title, author and picture of the book. The second slide should have a review of at least three complete sentences stating why you should read the book. Teens can submit up to two book recommendations for the month for a maximum of 2 hours of community service.
- Earn 1 hour of community service for telling us your opinion about the library. This survey was started in April and may only be done once for credit. This survey will be available till May 19. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/14y1tSqWwBoHcfD6jcEey69msHfJIHNXUNy8MTSJJcNg/edit.
Many community service opportunities are also available as online programs. Check our monthly and weekly newsletters and our library program calendar to see what is available.The majority of these programs require registration with a valid SHPL card and are available to those in grades 6-12. Questions? Please ask!
