Calling All Teen Volunteers!

Over the next several weeks, I will do my best to bombard you with information about this year’s Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival, which takes place on May 18 from 9am-5pm at Nazareth College in Rochester. Otherwise known as TBF.

Why? Because you should go. Why? TBF is an annual event that provides great opportunities for teens to interact with their favorite YA authors and discover new favorties. It is a day of fun, entertainment and fanning-out, and IT IS FREE. Hundreds, if not thousands, of teens and lovers of YA books will be in attendance.

Now, yours truly happens to be on the TBF Volunteer Committee, and I am here to tell you that volunteering at TBF is an amazing way to experience the festival! Available all day? Sign up to be an “author handler”; you'll get to hang with an author or a panel of authors all day, helping them get around and introducing them to their audiences. There are all sorts of assignments for those of you who are only available part of the day as well. We love having teen volunteers, but we’re also looking for some adults to help the day run smoothly. If you’re interested, you can fill out an online volunteer form HERE. Do it! Do it soon! Volunteer registration ends on March 25!

For a full list of this year's authors, their books, and just about everything else you need to know about TBF, visit the website: 

Hope to see you there! -Kelley, (Your) Teen Services Librarian
