Student Friends

Student Friends for 2016 is over for the summer. Join us again next summer when kids entering 6th-8th grades are invited to volunteer for a total of four hours at the Central Library Children's Room.  Various time slots throughout the week are available; you choose time slots when you sign up to be a Student Friend, or sign up for time slots as you work. For more information, contact us at bplkids@ci.berkeley.ca.us or 510.981.6223.
