Teen Volunteers


Jack Canavan, South Hadley High School junior, has been volunteering at the Gaylord Library for 4 years. Thanks Jack!

The Gaylord Library offers teens an opportunity for volunteering during the summer break. Tasks may include helping with a craft for kids, shelving books, or reading to a group of children, and helping out with the Summer Reading Program.  If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please contact our youth services librarian Emily Gallik at emily.shgaylord@gmail.com.

We are currently looking for a teen artist to join us here at Gaylord. This volunteer will be responsible for most of the graphic design work needed for youth services, primarily making signs publicizing library events and news for display. If you’re interested in this position, contact Emily at the email provided above.

 Katharine McGee


“New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future where anything is possible–if you want it enough. Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. A hundren years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. Everyone there wants something…and everyone has something to lose.”





Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, Rick Riordanthe_hammer_of_thor


“Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon–the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki–and the price he wants is very high.”



The Bronze Key, Holly Black & Cassandra Clare13612965-_uy2550_ss2550_

“Magic can save you. Magic can kill you. Students at the Magisterium are supposed to be safe. Under the watchful eyes of the mages, they are taught to use magic to bring order to a chaotic world. But now the chaos is fighting back. Call, Tamara, and Aaron should be worrying about things like pop quizzes and magic contests. Instead, after the shocking death of one of their classmates, they must track down a sinister killer…and rish their own lives in the process. As Call, Tamara, and Aaron discover, magic can only be as good as the person who wields it. In evil hands, it has the capacity to do immeasurable harm–unless it is stopped in time.”

Star Wars: Lost Stars, Claudia Graylost-stars


“Eight years after the fall of the Old Republic, the Galactic Empire now reigns over the known galaxy. Resistance to the Empire has been all but silenced. Only a few courageous leaders such as Bail Organa of Alderaan still dare to openly oppose Emperor Palpatine. After years of defiance, the many worlds at the edge of the Outer Rim have surrendered. With each planet’s conquest, the Empire’s might grows even stronger. The latest to fall under the Emperor’s control is the isolated mountain planet Jelucan, whose citizens hope for a more prosperous future even as the Imperial Starfleet gathers overhead.”
