Help us get ready for the upcoming Warwick Children's Book Festival! Welcome our authors by helping to make gift bags full of homemade goodies. Help plan a craft for the children's tent too. This year, we have over 60 visiting authors so we'll need all the help we can get. There is no commitment to come every week, however you must register for each week you are attending so we make sure we have the room to social distance. We will cancel any week it rains, This year, we'll be making rock photo/nametag holders and book cover magnets! Earn 2 hours of volunteer credit for each session you attend!!
