LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Henderson Libraries has put out a request for youths, aged 11-17, to write thank-you notes for Southern Nevada healthcare workers.
The request is being billed as a 'pandemic-friendly' volunteer opportunities as part of its newly re-launched Teen Service Club.
Interested teens just need to stop by a Henderson Libraries location and pick up a packet of supplies via the curbside pickup service. Using the supplies, the teens will create notes that will be dropped off at Henderson Hospital and other Valley Health System locations.

“All levels of employees at these institutions have been working hard to keep our families and neighbors healthy during this unprecedented health crisis, and this is a small way to demonstrate our gratitude,” shares Henderson Libraries Assistant Library Manager and Youth Services Department Head Bethany Lafferty. “We will be providing kits with supplies to get started and the kids will need to provide their own glue, markers, paint, and whatever else they'd like to use to complete the decoration and write a message.”
The release notes that many scholarships, along with educational and civic organizations, require volunteer hours. Each card will earn students 15 minutes of service time.
Cards will need to be turned back in at Henderson Libraries by September 30. Service time will be calculated based on each participant's return slips.
