Are you a teen or do you know a teen that would like a say in how the New Hartford Public Library serves the teens in our area?
The NHPL is creating a Teen Readers’ Advisory Board and we are looking for members willing to lend their voices and opinions!
Teens volunteering on our Teen Advisory Board will serve in the following capacities:
- Offer title suggestions to increase our collection of YA materials
- Collaborate with NHPL Staff to develop and implement YA programs
- Offer input to NHPL Staff for the development and implementation of collaborative YA programs with Community and School District Partners
The benefits of serving on the Teen Advisory Board include:
- Development of leadership, interpersonal, and collaborative skills needed for college, employment, and the rest of life!
- Looks great on college applications!
- Watching something that you’ve worked hard on come to life is very rewarding!
The benefits to the NHPL include:
- Access to a level of expertise that we didn’t have before (because you’re young and we’re not!)
- The development of a new generation of library users and lovers who will help the NHPL be the community resource we envision
Please fill out the form below if you are interested in joining. Thank you.

New Hartford Public Library and the Mid York System announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.
This partnership allows the New Hartford Public Library to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers. The new program will work as an outreach to several valued groups of patrons, including teens, those with disabilities, and seniors who need to take a renewal exam, as well as patrons at every other stage of life.
Driving-Tests.org is a part of Elegant E-Learning, Inc., an eight-year-old company with a proven track record of revolutionizing online resources for learner drivers. Driving-Tests.org is part of a plan to improve global driver safety by providing free practice tests written by experts to anyone who wants to study, along with online copies of official study guides. To help achieve this goal, the company has also created driving practice sites for the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and India.
