srp2Want to share your love for our Summer Reading Program and help families sign up?  Volunteers are needed for the Summer Reading Program registration table in the library.  We have many shifts to fill from June 1 to June 14, at 10:00-12:30, 12:30-3:00, and 3:00-5:00. You’ll be trained on how to 1) explain how the program works, 2) put individuals’ information into a simple online form, and 3) hand out game cards!

We’re looking for adult and teen volunteers who are friendly, patient, and enjoy working with the public.  Previous experience is not required.  Computer skills necessary.  A State of Iowa Criminal History Record Check is required for this position.

If interested, please turn in a Volunteer Application to the Help Desk soon!  Training will be held on Wednesday, May 27.

childrensdayAnother (messier) option is Children’s Day on Saturday, June 6!  We need volunteers to help with colored hairspray, our giant Bookmark chalkboard, Paint the Town, and our Silly Props photo booth.  There are 5 openings for the 9:30am-12:30pm shift and 7 spots left for 12:15-3:30pm.

I’ve put myself down for the afternoon shift — join me!  Sign up at http://summerofthearts.volunteerlocal.com as part of the 2015 Iowa Arts Festival.  For assistance registering, contact Jenna Isaacson at 319-337-7944 or jenna@summerofthearts.org.
