Ways that you can help...

Volunteer for the Festival

Every year we need around 30-35 volunteer to help with the event. Many of these volunteers introduce the authors and see to their needs by helping them find their way around campus, but we also need volunteers to help students move around campus and ensure that no one gets lost. If this is something you would like to do please let us know.


If you are interested in becoming a community partner or getting more information to help us continue promoting literacy in the Ozarks for this year and the years to come, please contact our fundraising chair ( The donation will help us continue to bring talented authors and illustrators to southwest Missouri while keeping the admission fees accessible for students who attend. The contributions are tax-free.  Checks may be made payable to the Children’s Literature Festival of the Ozarks, and may be mailed to the address listed below.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.  Thank you for considering the request to support literacy, the children of southwest Missouri and the Children’s Literature Festival. 

Contact Judith John to volunteer or become a sponsor.
