Albany Public Library

  • 1 person is interested

The Albany Public Library is partnering with Edmund O'Neal Middle School and Project Lit to run a virtual book club for middle school aged students.

We're looking for volunteers who can take part in the meetings, encourage the students to participate, and act as a role model. Volunteers are not expected to lead the meetings.

Book club meetings will occur every week on Thursdays from 11am-12pm.

Volunteers will be expected to do the reading for each week, as well.

We're ideally looking for diverse and/or younger volunteers who can connect with the students.
