This October, Deirdre (Archivist Librarian) and Kristen (Musician) will volunteer in rural Bolivia for 5 weeks with the non profit BiblioWorks . BiblioWorks promotes education and literacy by building libraries, supplying books and training librarians in the poorest communities of Bolivia since 2005.
Deirdre and Kristen will travel to 4-5 of Biblioworks libraries, conducting a cultural workshop. During the workshop, we will create songs with the children inspired by books. These books will be in both English and Spanish, and at a variety of reading levels. The paticipants will be given shaker eggs and a chance to play and sing along with our collectively written songs, as well as exposure to the acoustic guitar. We need your help to raise $3,700. These funds will go directly to cover travel expenses, teaching supplies, room and board, and the books and instruments which will be donated to BiblioWorks.
Stories plus music creates a fun way to build literacy!
