Volunteer for Summer Reading at the Library
Posted Date: 5/18/2017
The Longview Public Library is looking for dedicated volunteers to help with our Summer Reading Program for children and teens.

Young people across the country will be invited to “Build a Better World” at their libraries this summer, and you can be a vital part of that as a Summer Reading Volunteer!
• Get youth excited for reading and events at the library
• Help families sign up for the reading program
• Manage prizes and rewards
• Assist at library events
Library volunteers must complete an application, pass a criminal background check, and attend a training session. Applications are available at the library at the downstairs checkout desk. Training is scheduled for Saturday morning, June 3 from 10-12 and Tuesday evening, June 6 from 6-8. Choose which training date works best for you! Summer Reading begins June 23 and ends August 5.

Summer Reading at the library combats summer slide, a problem where young people who are not engaged over the summer return to school several months behind. Participating in Summer Reading means that kids are ready to learn in the fall. This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and have fun while doing it!
