During the year and throughout the nation libraries have adopted the theme of “A
Universe of Stories” and some local libraries are no exception. There has been some
requests to the Education Co-Chairs asking for volunteers to provide outreach to the
requesting libraries. If you would like to help out with an education request please
contact our education co-chairs, Ciera Partyka-Worley, or Brian Jackson. Other
opportunities to volunteer for educational outreach are available as well.
We have a star party scheduled for June 1st in Idaho City and one on June 8th at
Dedication Point. As always a GO / NO-GO message will post on BAS1 Yahoo group
and on facebook letting you know if you would like to attend.
