King County Library System
Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children’s Day/Book Day) 2013
Are you looking to get practical outreach experience in a public library setting? King County Library System is looking for volunteers to help organize their 4th Annual Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros, also known as Día. Día is a multi-cultural, multi-generational literacy-oriented event that connect families to books and libraries. Here is how you can help:
-Recruit local organizations to participate in community fairs at Westfield Southcenter (April 27th) or Bellevue Crossroads (May 4th). This can be done remotely.
-Participate at actual community fairs: craft tables, book giveaways, booths support, etc.
If interested, please contact José García, Teen Librarian, Lake Hills Library at: email@example.com.
As a side note: Elizabeth Brookbank (2nd year residential MLIS) and I (Liz Mills) participated in this event, both in the planning and execution, and it was a blast. The group is fantastic to work with, you learn a lot about community partnerships and event planning, and the public loved the event. I highly recommend this as a way to get involved in real community-library partnership work!
