Hi everyone,

We need enthusiastic volunteers for our free summer reading camp at Columbia Park in north Portland! We partner with Portland Parks and Rec Dept. and their Free Lunch + Play Program. The shift runs from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm every Tuesday starting on June 25th and ending August 13th. You don't need to commit to every Tuesday but can pick and choose which Tuesdays you can volunteer.

Duties include reading picture books aloud to kids, giving away free books and leading small arts and crafts activities.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

About Bookmobile Babe

Location:

3439 NE Sandy Blvd., PMB 312, Portland, OR 97232, US

Mission Statement

Bookmobile Babe is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to promote the love of literacy to underserved populations in the Portland, Oregon metro area.

Description

A small group of book lovers and teachers got together in 2018 once we learned that the Multnomah County Library had lost its funding for a bookmobile. We then decided to start our own! We began doing book exchanges with kids so that they get our books and we get theirs! We offer a free summer reading camp to kids ages 0-18 at Lents Park, Columbia and Gateway Discovery parks every summer in partnership with PPR's Free Lunch + Play Program. We believe in offering free literature that expresses diversity in all forms. We support authors and readers of all ages, colors, cultures, backgrounds, and abilities.Bookmobile Babe has also distributed around 2000 free books each year to children for the past 6 years.
