If you are a Wallingford student going into grades 5, 6, or 7 in the fall of 2010, you are eligible to volunteer to help us run our summer reading program. This year our program will be Haunt Your Library This Summer, featuring our Ghoulish Gameboard! We are expecting many enthusiastic players and we need our volunteers to help us run the game.
Volunteers commit to working two hours each day for one week. If you have the time to commit, please download an application and return it to the Children's Library. Read the application carefully with your parent or guardian and fill it out. All application forms are due by June 8.
We hope you will consider applying; we really can’t run the Summer Gameboard without our wonderful volunteers.
