3/31/17 – Library and/or Bookmobile Assistant
Sand Castle Library (PIER), Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Sarah P’s comments: I first heard about the Sand Castle Library in 2015 when the previous Director contacted me and asked for volunteers. We corresponded so I could determine whether it was this a legit opportunity which it definitely is. Then in-stepped Librarian Cate Caryle who flew down from Canada and volunteered. If you are seeking a volunteer opportunity and/or a way to gain international experience, Cate recommends this organization and just forwarded a message from current Director Cam O-Brien:
–This year Bookmobile reading specialists are adding science to the model and using it to teach science concepts with reading comprehension. The library will have a STEM component with Fridays dedicated to hands-on activities. We can use lesson plans and volunteers. Skype lessons on these topics would be helpful as well as a volunteer librarian with Spanish to assist the current staff person.
