Please consider joining the inaugural class of the Castro Valley Bookleggers! The Booklegger program is a wonderful and flexible volunteer opportunity for people who love kids and books.

Bookleggers make magic! They are a group of volunteers dedicated to promoting     independent reading by children. They do this by introducing books that kids simply can’t resist. Bookleggers visit K to 5 classrooms in the Castro Valley Unified School District to share great books, including exciting adventures, suspenseful mysteries,  hilarious comedies and eye-popping nonfiction.

Librarians will teach you booktalking and storytelling skills.  You’ll use your talents and passion to connect kids and books. Are you ready to get started?

To kick off the program we are holding an orientation meeting on Tuesday, April 11 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. Please RSVP to Dawn (dbalestreri@aclibrary.org) or Chris (cselig@aclibrary.org).

At the orientation you will meet Library staff, get a demonstration of Booklegging, learn about the training program, and understand the commitment necessary to be an outstanding Booklegger.
