Volunteers Needed

LBF 2013Louisiana’s world-class celebration of readers, writers and their books returns to Baton Rouge for its 10th anniversary 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013. We want you to be part of it.

Volunteers are essential to the festival’s success. Whether it’s escorting one of the festival’s authors, serving as a room monitor in the State Capitol, or working with children’s crafts in the Young Readers Pavilion, your help is needed.

If you or your organization is interested in volunteering and would like more information about the festival as well as volunteer opportunities, visit our website at www.LouisianaBookFestival.org. Or, if you’ve already made up your mind to volunteer, go directly to http://www.louisianabookfestival.org/volunteer.html and select the “I Want To Volunteer” link.

The 2013 festival will feature more than 180 authors discussing their books; the Young Readers Pavilion, where children and parents will enjoy storytelling performances, face painting and other exciting activities; and a wide variety of book-related activities, demonstrations, exhibitions and performances. It all takes place at the State Library of Louisiana, the Louisiana State Capitol, the Capitol Park Museum and in tents on neighboring streets.

Being a Louisiana Book Festival volunteer is a fun and rewarding experience, plus you’ll receive a free festival t-shirt. We hope you’ll decide to join us. Your sign-up is not a commitment for the entire day — you’ll still be able to enjoy the festival as an attendee.
