Volunteerism Teaches Teen Work Ethic

Volunteer_TionnaMeet Tionna Kaiser. She taught herself to play piano, she accomplished her Summer Reading Program goals (early!), and she volunteers at OPL. Kaiser, a self-proclaimed nerd, has assisted children’s librarian Mary Mollner with summer programs at W. Dale Clark Main Library for the past two years. She started volunteering at OPL to get out of the house and keep herself busy over the summer, and has really grown to enjoy her work, especially when arts and crafts are involved! Kaiser is a junior at Central High School and loves visiting the zoo, walking around downtown, and eating at HuHot Mongolian Grill. Her favorite book series is Percy Jackson, and after she graduates, she wants to become a medical professional.
OPL is grateful for Kaiser and all of its volunteers. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering at OPL, visit your neighborhood branch to inquire about available opportunities. Click here for more information and a volunteer application.
