Transition Center Students Win Volunteer Award


The City of Euless presented the 2011 Volunteer Youth of the Year Award to the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD Adult Transition Program. Students in this program learn the skills necessary for making the transition to adulthood beyond public school. The Euless Public Library has participated with the HEB ISD Adult Transition program for several years. This year, eight high school students and two teachers come to the library once a week. The students continually survey the children's book collection to look for damaged books and clean the covers. This year they have already cleaned about 3,000 books and identified 531 books that needed repairs or replacements. Library Administrator Kate Lyon said, "This is a very important task that the students take seriously and they are helping to keep our children's book collection attractive and inviting."
