Looking for Public Library Summer Volunteer!

Abington READS! Volunteer

The Abington Township Public Library is looking for a responsible and committed volunteer to help supervise our Abington READS! Program. Abington READS! is a buddy reading program that pairs young readers (grades K-2) with young adults (grades 6-12) to practice reading aloud. Young readers gain confidence in their reading abilities, and young adults inspire a new generation of readers while earning valuable serving learning hours. The ideal volunteer would be available from 6-8pm every Tuesday night for 7 weeks, beginning June 19th and ending July 31st. The volunteer is responsible for checking in young readers and young adults, supervising the program and its participants, and overseeing parent pick-up and other clean up duties. This is an excellent opportunity for Education or Library Science majors, although community members are also welcome to volunteer. If you are interested, please contact Lindsay Cummings, Young Adult Reference Librarian, or 215-885-5180 x.13. Please provide one employment reference
