Teen Community Service

Adoption Tails Linked Image Block

Adoption Tails Community Service

Have you adopted a pet from an animal shelter or rescue league and given them a new home? Tell us your story and why rescuing and adopting an animal from a rescue league or shelter is so important to you. To participate fill out our form here and tell us your story.

Participants can submit one story per rescued pet. Each story will be worth 1 hour of community service. Your submission will not be considered complete until you e-mail Ms. Rose a picture of your pet at the communityservice@lindenhurstlibrary.org e-mail. Submissions will be used to create social media posts promoting shelter and animal rescue adoption.

Teen Book Reviewers

Teen Book Reviewers

Pick a new book to review from the Teen Room or from Libby. Please note that books must be a young adult title and new to the reader! Fill out the Teen Book Reviewers Request Form. When filling out the form please allow at least 3 days for a reply.

We will not accept reviews on books that were assigned for school and we limit multiple reviews on the same book. We suggest having an alternate choice of a book in case we are unable to approve your first selection. You can browse previous reviews on our website! 

Once we have received your submission please allow at least a week to be notified your community service letter is ready. Each review is worth 3 hours and each student is allowed to do 3 reviews a year.
