THE LOUISIANA BOOK FESTIVAL NEEDS YOU: VOLUNTEER TODAY!

The Louisiana Book Festival needs you! Join in the fun and experience the Louisiana Book Festival from within by volunteering.

Louisiana’s world-class celebration of readers, writers and their books is Sat., Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This nationally recognized literary event is free and will take place in the heart of Baton Rouge at the State Library of Louisiana, Louisiana State Capitol, Capitol Park Museum and in tents on neighboring streets.

Volunteers are essential to the festival’s success. Whether it is escorting the festival’s authors, serving as room monitors in the Capitol during panel discussions and author book talks or working with children in the Young Readers Pavilion, your help is needed.

If you are interested in volunteering and would like more information about the Festival as well as volunteer opportunities, visit www.LouisianaBookFestival.org and scroll down to the volunteer section.

For more information or to sign up, please email mhobkirk@slol.lib.la.us or call 225.342.4996.

The ninth annual Louisiana Book Festival, free and open to the public, is featuring more than 125 authors and panelists discussing their books; the Young Readers Pavilion, where children and parents will enjoy storytelling performances; and a wide variety of book-related activities, exhibitions and other performances.
