SuperKids Camp has issued a call for volunteers to help register an expected 3,500 second-grade students Saturday for its eight-week summer reading and enrichment program.

Registration will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center, and volunteers are needed for 3 1/2 -hour shifts -- from 8: 30 a.m. to noon, 11: 30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 2: 30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Children taking part in the program will spend two hours each morning reading, then participate in recreational activities.

For details and signing up to volunteer, call 410-448-5663, Ext. 114.

Baltimore County's public libraries are seeking middle school students to work as volunteers in this year's summer reading program.

Students can earn service learning credit for their work, which requires orientation and a brief training session. Last summer, 22,000 county students participated in the library's reading program.

For more information, students may contact their neighborhood public libraries.

Two libraries schedule children's reading activities

Reading activities for children are scheduled at two Baltimore County public libraries on Saturday.

Kathleen Jacobs of "Magic Pots and Recycled Bottles" will perform a puppet show for children at 1: 30 p.m. at the North Point Library, 1716 Merritt Blvd.

A demonstration and talk, "Mystery Powders Chemistry," will be held for children ages 8 to 12 at 2 p.m. at the Reisterstown Library on Cockeys Mill Road.
