Teens read to Tots!

Would you like to be one of the TEENS who reads to TOTS on Saturday, December 3?

We are doing “Dewey’s Dragon Tales” on Saturday, December 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (two hours) at Buena Vista Branch in the children's room, and we’d like to have one teen for every 10- or 15-minute interval, prepared with one or two picture books to read to whatever audience shows up. We have flyers out in the library and are asking the children’s librarians to be sure to promote it, so we’re hoping for a good turn-out over the two-hour span.


  1. Go to a children’s librarian at any of the three branches (Tina and Donna at BV, Cathleen, Jenny, and Ashley at Central, or Arsine at Northwest) and ask them to help you pick out some dragon-themed picture books (We already asked them to be ready!); 
  2. Practice reading your picture books aloud until you have some familiarity with the story; 
  3. Come to one rehearsal (probably on Wednesday, November 30th, after school—TBD) so we can show you the best story-time methods; 
  4. And show up on December 3 ready to read! 

  • You don’t have to be there for the entire two hours—a half-hour commitment would be just fine. (Although you can stay if you’re enjoying yourself.)
  • You will receive service hours for the rehearsal and for the time you spend at the read-aloud. (A minimum of two hours, a maximum of four.)
