About

Our small team at DIBS (Delivering Infinite Book Shelves) recently pushed out our first-ever blog, which we hope will become a popular and helpful educational resource about childhood education and literacy. To make this as sustainable as possible, we are looking for a volunteer writer (or writers) that is/are experienced with the blog space that can help us maintain it effectively, while growing our followers and increasing engagement. For students, this position can offer valuable experience as you get closer to entering the job field. For others interested, whether you are a retiree, a previous teacher or someone who is looking to do something more for the Omaha community, your experience, time and passion would be incredibly valuable as we start this new venture.
