Volunteer, Monson Free Library, Monson MA

Interested in gaining practical experience providing programs for kids? The Monson Free Library wants to hear from you! We are a small public library with a very active youth department (of one!) committed to providing innovative and engaging programs to the youth of our community of 8,500 people. We are currently gearing up for the coming school year and considering what programs we will offer. In addition to a weekly story time for preschoolers and activities for school vacation weeks, we are considering:

Monthly:
A Book Club focusing on mysteries for grades 4-6 (last year we created video book trailers)
"Crafternoons" grades 3 and up    (this would be a brand new program!)
Science Club grades 4-6 (last year we did squid dissection, PC dissection, Bubbleology, lava lamps, etc)
Tech Club (new!)
Lego Club
Pajama Story Time
And a weekly Baby story time
We also offer one-shot special events, like Boo Bash for Halloween, tea parties and of course, Summer Reading.
We would be more than willing to accommodate your special skills or interests!

Requirements:
Over the top enthusiasm for providing engaging activities for kids in a supportive environment, fondness for wearing costumes, interest in S.T.E.M. programming, ability to commit to one year, interest in creating, promoting and facilitating events and activities (with supervision), and a time commitment of up to 8 hours a week, although research and preparation can be done off site.
