Opportunity Description:

We are looking for volunteers to run monthly sessions at Vancouver elementary schools.  This is a fantastic opportunity for people who are passionate about children and books. At each monthly session, volunteers move boxes of books, set up displays/baskets of books,  give a short introduction of the program, interact with classes of children as they come in to select a book to keep, help children find a book, and put in a label/assist younger children with writing their name, clean up and put boxes away.

We ask volunteers  for a 6 month minimum commitment to attend a repeating monthly session typically on a Thursday afternoon between 12:30 and 3 or Monday morning from 10- 12:00. We are looking to expand so there may be opportunities at different times.

Volunteers are required to move boxes so this is not appropriate for individuals who cannot lift over 25 lbs.  Volunteers must be available during school hours on weekdays. We do not run sessions during the summer months.
