Spring Book Fair: May 19th – May 26th

We are looking for volunteers to spend an hour or two to prepare for and help manage this exciting event!
– Before the fair: Help plan the theme, the Saturday shop event, marketing, a reading themed craft project, teacher wish lists and more.
– During the fair: Assist with running the fair itself, help children find books, set up and break down, being cashiers and participation in the Saturday shopping event.
Opportunities to volunteer include spending as little an hour or two and can be during the business day or on weekends – there is something for everyone! We are also looking for K-3 parents to get involved with leading the book fair in the future. Please contact Michelle Levitt at Ycsmom@ymail.com to participate!
