Volunteer Opportunities

Little Libraries

We are recruiting volunteers for Little Libraries, a Cardinal Commitment Organization. 

What are the Little Libraries, exactly?

In collaboration with pediatrician Dr. Lisa Chamberlain and the Stanford Pediatric Advocacy Program, we have installed "little libraries" in pediatrics clinics around the mid-peninsula (Mayview, Gardner, Fair Oaks, and Ravenswood) to promote literacy in low-income communities. Families are encouraged to read and bring home books for free. 

How can you help? 

We are recruiting a committed group of undergraduate students who will help lead regular "storytime" events in participating clinics. As a volunteer reader, you will engage with children in the little library space and model best practices for their parents. Proficiency in Spanish is especially helpful, but not mandatory.
