If you’re a middle schooler looking for a volunteer opportunity, the libraries are looking for kids going into 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to help other kids spin the wheel and stamp the board for the Summer Reading Program. (Keep reading for details!)
In Castro Valley, the orientation dates and times are Wednesday, May 29th, from 4-5 pm and Saturday, June 8th. You can sign up here: Kid Power Orientation Sign-Up. Applications are available at the library. Just ask the librarian in the Children’s Area. Last year I signed up because I thought it would be fun to help other kids with the summer reading program too, and I liked it because it’s a chance to make new friends. It was great helping little kids earn their prize and when we finished our volunteer hours, we received an invitation to a party. There was a comedian, pizza, and goodie bags! That a great!
Make sure to sign up for the Summer Reading Game!
