Tutors needed for teen programs

Are you an adult who would like to share your skills with young people who want to learn? If so, opportunities are waiting for you at Valley libraries.

The King County Library System is recruiting volunteer Study Zone tutors for students in elementary through high school. All that’s needed is a two-hour weekly commitment or availability for flexible substitute scheduling.

Student volunteers can receive academic community service.

Contact Annie Poyner for details by calling (425) 369-3312 or e-mail to aholloma@kcls.org.

The Study Zone program is offered as a free service of the King County Library System. Learn more about your local libraries at www.kcls.org/studyzone.
