VOL­UN­TEER READ­ERS

NEEDED We need big guys to read to lit­tle guys. The Queen Anne’s County Li­brary and the Queen Anne’s County pub­lic schools are be­gin­ning a Guys Read Pro­ject by the Ru­ral Mary­land Coun­cil, start­ing in mid-Novem­ber. For the pro­gram to be suc­cess­ful we need men in the com­mu­nity to be­come vol­un­teer read­ers. Teams of four or more vol­un­teers will visit schools to read for 20 min­utes. We will visit eight times to six schools for fourth­grade stu­dents and two vis­its each to six schools for fifth­grade stu­dents. Vol­un­teers can choose to par­tic­i­pate in only a cou­ple or as many ses­sions as their sched­ule will per­mit. Show­ing young read­ers that books can be fun will en­cour­age them to read and use the li­brary. To reg­is­ter or for more in­for­ma­tion call or email Kim Bak­larz 410758-0980 or go to kim@qa­cli­brar y.org.

“Jay dis­cov­ered his pas­sion of photography upon in­her­it­ing his fa­ther, for­mer Na­tional Ge­o­graphic pho­tog­ra­pher, Kevin Flem­ing’s film Nikon n90s at the young age of four­teen. Jay im­me­di­ately de­vel­oped an affin­ity to look­ing at life through the lens of his cam­era and what en­sued was an ex­cit­ing pho­to­graphic jour­ney that would even­tu­ally lead him to his ca­reer as a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher. Now, at the age of twen­tyeight, Jay has an ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio that is sure to im­press.
