The Junior Friends is a community service organization of local teens that has been helping the Library since 1998. The group meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month, in the Second Floor Meeting Room of the Main Library. Membership is open to all students in grades 7 through 12.
The JFOL assist the adult Friends of the Massillon Public Library with book sales, the Massillon-McKinley parade, the Massillon Fun Fest and the annual Christmas parade. Occasionally, the JFOL help with other library-sponsored events, when requested.
Dues are $5.00 a calendar year. Teens may substitute volunteer hours for the membership dues, but only with permission from the Young Adult Specialist.
If you would like to join the Junior Friends, please stop in the Main Library and pick up an application at the Reference Desk.
