First Book seeking board members

First Book (www.firstbook.org) is a national non-profit organization that gives new books to children from low-income families so that the children can start their own home libraries. The Portland Advisory Board has been active in the tri-counties since 1998, and has granted a total of 40,210 new books to existing literacy organizations such as LifeWorks NW and the Oregon Child Development Coalition. Our Board is comprised of volunteers from non-profit agencies, businesses, libraries, and the community. We are currently recruiting new Board members, including a Chairperson, to lead the organization into 2010. The primary duties of the board are to conduct fundraising campaigns, identify potential recipient groups, and award book grants every year, with a time committment of 5-10 hours/month. If you are interested, please visit www.firstbook.org/portlandor or email [email protected] We will hold an Informational Meeting on Thursday, November 19 at 7:30 at Cafe Pallino (3003 SE Division St, 97202). At that meeting, we can answer questions and tell you more about First Book. We hope to see you there!
