We’re looking for a friendly, energetic adult volunteer who enjoys interacting with young children and their caregivers to be our Storytime volunteer. Storytimes are held in Mitchell Park Library’s Midtown Room every Friday morning. The 10am toddler storytime is for children ages 18 months to 3 years, and the 11am preschool storytime is for 3-5 year olds. Between the two storytimes we host a "Stay & Play" session for the children and their caregivers to enjoy some play time in the library, which builds community and allows children to practice their social interaction skills.
Responsibilities include: greeting attendees and showing them where to park their strollers, taking a count of program attendees, and assisting with set-up and clean-up of the Stay & Play materials.
We ask that you make a commitment to volunteering every Friday for at least 6 months (with the exception of vacation or illness).
