Read to Learn Books for Free Book Sorters:
This year, Miami Book Fair will spearhead the Read to Learn Books for Free Campaign in partnership with The Children’s Trust. This community wide initiative puts books in the hands of young children in under-resourced neighborhoods. Numerous bookshelves containing children’s books will be placed at several locations throughout Miami-Dade County. Book sorters will be needed to work out of our main office/storage room to separate and sort all books as they come in. Sorters will also be required to place stickers on books and keep an up-to-date inventory of books. Time volunteered counts towards service hours. Volunteers will receive a certificate of appreciation.

Read to Learn Books for Free Drivers:
This year, Miami Book Fair will be spearheading the Read to Learn Books for Free Campaign in partnership with The Children’s Trust. This community wide initiative puts books in the hands of young children in under-resourced neighborhoods. Numerous bookshelves containing children’s books will be placed at several locations throughout Miami-Dade County. The Book Fair is in need of volunteer drivers to pick up books from our main office/storage area and deliver them to the various locations. Drivers will be expected to refill and replenish the bookshelves at these locations with books. All drivers must have a valid driver’s license and their own means of reliable transportation. Volunteer drivers will be reimbursed for mileage. All volunteers will receive a certificate of appreciation.

Event photographer for Miami Book Fair: Photographers are needed to attend Book Fair events, both on and off campus, to take pictures for social media postings, as well as newsletters and websites. Each photographer must have their own equipment and means of reliable transportation. Videography is a plus, but not required. Photographers will be reimbursed for gas expenses and will receive credit for all images used. This is a great portfolio/resume builder that could lead to paying gigs.
