Early Literacy - Book Start: Storytime Reader at Local Childcare Centers

Do you love reading to children? Are you looking for an enriching experience to round out your week? Then Book Start may be just the fit for you!

As a Book Start Volunteer, you will be matched with a Douglas County preschool, early childhood center, or home daycare to lead a weekly Storytime, through which you bring the love of reading and literacy to a new generation of young children.  

Training consists of:

  • One-hour workshop
  • Shadowing of both a library Storytime and a current volunteer

Please note Book Start is an outreach opportunity that takes place at early childhood centers within the community, not at your library branch.

Volunteers must be 21 years of age or older.
