Librarians help maintan BBFL's book collection and play a pivotal role in preparing books for circulation. Serving as librarian is a terrific way to give back to the community. The volunteer schedule is flexible. Sign up for whatever hours you can cover. If interested, contact us for training.
Story Time is a popular program for kids ages 2 to 4. If you love reading stories, teaching, and designing craft projects for toddlers, we'd love to have you join BBFL's Story Time team! Due to social distancing requirements during COVID-19, Story Time is being shared online through videos produced by volunteers. Contact us if you'd like to create videos that share stories or craft projects with Story Time kids.
BBFL's ESL classes provide free lessons to neighbors who want to learn English. Due to the pandemic, the library has transitioned from group lessons to 1-on-1 tutoring. Volunteer tutors sign up for shifts through Signupgenius, and students are invited to class by appointment. Sign up for shifts that fit your schedule. Focus is on conversation and reading. If you love teaching and would like to help someone learn English, we welcome your help!
