Hi everyone,

Bookmobile Babe runs a free summer reading camp in partnership with Portland Parks and Rec's Dept. Free Lunch + Play Program each summer. We need enthusiastic volunteers to read picture books aloud to kids, give away free books to kids of all ages and to lead small arts and crafts activities.

The shifts are each Wednesday starting June 26th and ending August 14th from 11:30 am - 1 pm.

You don't need to volunteer every Wednesday but let me know which Wednesdays you can be at the park.

Please contact me with any questions and thanks in advance for your interest!

About Bookmobile Babe

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.
