Every Friday afternoon from 3:30pm to 6pm. Join us for story time at the StoryTent at the Imperial Beach Farmers' Market. Volunteers provide free literacy coaching and read aloud with kids. You may volunteer for the full time or choose an hour or two based on your schedule.
What is a Story Tent?
In order to foster a love for reading, Traveling Stories has found the best method is to provide a welcoming environment where books are treasured and read for fun. Ideally this would be in homes, but for many children book reading is not a common past-time, therefore Traveling Stories has gone into the neighborhoods, and specifically at the Farmers' Markets, setting up a comfortable, relaxing area where children are encouraged to read aloud. Volunteers provide free literacy coaching and to motivate kids to read, they offer "book bucks" in exchange for books read.
Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. To volunteer, you must complete a simple application with reference checks before being cleared to volunteer.
