Volunteer for Children’s Book Fair
January 23, 2007, Volume 53, No. 19

The 15th Annual African American Children’s Book Fair will be held on Saturday, February 3, at Community College of Philadelphia Gymnasium, 1-3 p.m. The free event is sponsored by the African American Children’s Book Project and NBC10. The book fair exposes the Delaware Valley region to the best and brightest children’s authors and illustrators. It is also important because it provides resources to parents, educators and children that encourage the love of reading.

We have two shifts: 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The morning shift would assist in helping to set up the fair. The second shift would be involved in the actual event. Please contact me at (215) 898-2020 or sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu for information on how to volunteer for this program.
