Looking For Guest Readers (And Their Animal Friends)!

Posted on April 25, 2021

Do you have a feathered, furry, scaly, or slimy animal friend who happens to love a good story? Would you like to read a story to your animal and share the experience with your community? The La Porte County Public Library is looking for community members and their animal friends to volunteer as guest readers for our Tails and Tales Summer Reading Program!

How To Become A Guest Reader

If you are interested in becoming a guest reader, please visit the Volunteer page on our website! Complete the volunteer interest form and we will review your information. You do not need to worry about getting your animal to the library, we will come to you with the necessary equipment! Please note that although you may fill out a form expressing interest in becoming a guest reader, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants as spaces are limited. If you are not contacted for this opportunity, do not lose heart! We have other, similar opportunities for which we will also need guest readers!

What We Need From You

A library staff member will come to you and your animal’s location with audio and video recording equipment. You will be provided with a book title ahead of time to practice reading. When our staff member arrives and has the equipment set up, they will film you introducing the book and your animal friend, reading the story to your animal, and then encouraging people to log their reading days!

See Your Videos Featured!

Your video will be featured on our library website and social media.

Megan, Community Engagement Librarian, Unicorn Fanatic, The Most Sparkly Librarian – any of these titles will do. When not bringing the Van Halen to early literacy classes or spreading the joy of reading to youngsters throughout the community, one can find her enjoying copious amounts of carbohydrates, binge-watching random television shows and movies, pretending to be a professional photographer, dancing around and singing when no one is watching (okay, maybe when people are watching, too), and thoroughly enjoying life with a never-ending smile!
