Volunteers Strongly Needed to Help Elementary Students


Have you heard the buzz about the HIVE?

Volunteers are strongly needed to read to Muncie elementary students and/or help with math skills.

The HIVE is a reading- and math-oriented help center at Maring-Hunt Library for elementary students.

Youth Services staff at the Library coordinate weekly appointments between volunteers and students needing help at Maring-Hunt Library. Students bring their homework or come to the library to get extra help practicing math or reading by listening to stories read aloud or reading aloud to volunteers.

Any interested adult with at least a high school diploma who works well with children and is willing to complete a required background check will be considered.

Current/former teachers, education students, or those with some experience with children preferred. We have a waiting list of students seeking help, so please contact us right away  at 741-5150 or stop by Maring-Hunt Library to pick up a volunteer application.
