-Volunteering opportunities

-Summer vacation is around the corner, but we’re already thinking about tutoring! You might consider signing up for FREE tutoring for your 2nd or 3rd grader at Desert Foothills Library if your child does well in class but struggles with tests, if their teacher moves through material quickly and your child needs a little more practice, or if your child keeps up with discussions in class but has a hard time pulling all of the information together. Applications can be found at dfla.org, and please check our website for updates about tutoring events.

-If you are a college student or an adult who would like to become a part of this rewarding program, please consider volunteering your time as a tutor at DFL! Download the volunteer application at dfla.org

-High-schoolers, we could use your help, too! If you are interested in mentoring a child in our homework help program this fall, please contact Caitlin Decker at cdecker@dfla.org.

-Restore with music and color a universe of stories a summer reading event

-Wednesday, June 12, 2 – 3:30 pm

-Join us for a fun and unique way to unwind and express creativity! Researchers and art therapist alike have pushed the stress relieving and mind restoring benefits of adult coloring. These pages have more intricate designs and patterns than those designed for children. Just like meditation, coloring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate free-floating anxiety. Please join us for a casual adult coloring session!
