January 3, 2006 > Booklegger orientations
by Gail Orwig
How would you like to have children hanging on your every word? Bring together books, children and libraries through community service? Become a Booklegger and experience the satisfaction of bringing the joys of reading to children in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Eight weeks of training at the Fremont Main Library (to be held on Tuesday mornings, 9:15 a.m. to11:45 a.m., Jan. 31 through March 28) will introduce volunteers to booktalking, reading aloud and storytelling skills; regular visits in the Fremont Unified School District will follow.
Orientation meetings for prospective volunteers will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., and again on that date from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. You need only attend one of these meetings. The Fremont Main Library is located at 2400 Stevenson Blvd., in Fremont. The meetings will be held in Conference Room A. If you can commit three to four hours a week to this award-winning program, or have any questions, please call the Children's desk at (510) 745-1421, and ask for Gail or Karen. Come join us for an exciting volunteer opportunity! The Fremont Main Library is part of the Alameda County Library system.
