Cookie Cart Volunteer Event!

Are you ready to burst some librarian stereotypes and encourage diversity in a future library workforce?  Please join us to meet and work alongside teens at the Cookie Cart kitchen.  We have the opportunity to talk with teens, hear about their experience at Cookie Cart, and share our stories about what we do and how we got where we are.  Youth employees will get tips on modeling professional behavior, practice their interpersonal skills, and best of all, learn that librarians are not all bun-wearing, book-wielding, “ssshhers”.  In addition to the conversation, we’ll work side-by-side with the youth employees to help scoop fresh dough, hand decorate cookies, and pack orders.

All librarians are welcome.  SLA membership is not required.  Kitchen volunteer capacity is 20 people so please RSVP here if you plan on attending.

Directions/Parking: Cookie Cart is located between Fremont and Emerson on West Broadway Ave.  There is free public parking in a lot directly behind the building as well as on Broadway and Fremont. If parking in the back, volunteers can enter the building through the back door by ringing a buzzer next to the back door.  Upon arrival, volunteers will check in at Cookie Cart’s lobby where they will sign in, get name tags and meet bakery staff who will take the volunteers on a tour before they get started in the bakery.

Attire: Volunteers are asked to dress for comfort since they will be on their feet while working in the bakery. Open-toed shoes are not allowed in the bakery. Any clunky jewelry may need to be removed. There is storage on site where volunteers can lock up belongings. Cookie Cart will provide aprons, hairnets, and rubber gloves.

Questions: email Beth Northcutt, president-elect@minnesota.sla.org
