Volunteer reading books to elementary kids

Here’s a safe and easy way to get volunteer hours. Just take a video of yourself reading a children’s book and send it to any of the emails below. This video could be shown to some classes for elementary students kindergarten through 4th. Normally these teachers would like volunteers to come into class and read to these students, but due to COVID, a video of yourself reading is a safe and easy equivalent to reading to these students. Send your video of you reading to any of these emails.

Jenks Library Volunteer

Hi, Key Clubbers! If you are interested in getting service hours, here is one way! All you need is to make a list of recommandations consisting of at least 12 books. One list can get you one hour of volunteer hours, and you can do up to 10 lists a week!

Here is how you do it!

Step one: Make sure you have a library card and have an account set up on
www.tulsalibrary.org.

Step Two: Follow the instructions below to create a reading guide in Bibliocommons.

Step Three:  Email Volunteers@tulsalibrary.org with a brief description of how many lists you made and of what type – you will receive one hour of volunteer work for a fully developed Guides and Recommendations or If You Liked lists with at least 12 thoughtful references. The Tulsa Library volunteer services will log your time after receiving and verifying your list. A limit of ten lists per week, please.

Here is how you can make a Bibliocommons List:

  1. Log into www.TulsaLibrary.org
  2. Click “My TCCL” in the upper left-hand corner
  3. Log in using your library card / password
  4. Click on My TCCL link and from the drop-down menu select Lists
  5. Click on the Create a New List link
  6. Choose list type – Guides and Recommendations or If You Liked
    If you select Guides and Recommendations as the list type, you may click on the down arrow in the List Type popup menu and select a more specific descriptor for your list
  7. Give your list a unique title
  8. Add a description of your list if you wish
  9. Click on Add to List to search for titles to add to the list
  10. If more than one item is located click the Add to List link to add the desired item – repeat step 9 until all titles have been added (100 max)

Key Club Hours

Hi, Key Clubbers!!

Some members are having trouble submitting their hours while others are navigating hour submissions for the first time. As a result of that, I came here to tell you all that you can contact me at evonn.annor941@jenksms.com if you have any questions or problems with your hours.

Thanks, Everyone!!

Bags of Hope

Hey Key Clubbers!! This year’s Governor’s Project is “Bags of Hope” where care packages made up of hygiene products, books, and personalized cards will be sent to children in the Foster Care system. If you are looking for some fun and easy service points that can be done remotely, then please consider participating in this opportunity!

Bring any donations to McCown’s room on the second floor of building 5 (5-222).

We need you all to write a fun and personalized card addressed to a child in the Foster Care System that will be receiving a Bag of Hope. This can be short and sweet, long and encouraging, or maybe not even just a card. We encourage you all to get creative! Maybe draw a picture with a sweet message or incorporate a coloring page aspect into your letter, this is all up to your creativity! At the moment, we only need 6 cards, but if you would like to donate other materials that can be used to make more care packages, that would be very appreciated!

Here are some options for how you can participate!
1) Write a personalized and fun card dedicated to a child in the Foster Care system! This can be a letter of encouragement, a drawing, or maybe even a coloring page with a sweet message!
2) Make and donate a reusable mask! If you are the sewing type and would like to make some masks to donate to these sweet children, then by all means do so! Any other hygiene products are also welcome (ex: toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, etc)
3) Have any old kid’s books lying around in your house? Well, you can donate those for points too!

Volunteer at Flycatcher Trail!

Help make improvements to the garden and clean out flower beds to help prepare for winter and keep the garden beautiful for students and the Jenks community to use! Friends and family are also welcome to come. Volunteers should bring water and a mask.

Time: Saturday, October 10th, 9:00 am-noon, students may come and go as needed.
