Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our April 13th "Amazing Animals and Interesting Environments" Reading Clubs are just two days away! If you're planning to volunteer with us on the 13th, visit our website TODAY and sign up!

If you're signed up but can't join us, please click here to cancel before 3 p.m. tomorrow so that someone else may take your place.



Want to become more involved? Each year, Reading to Kids hosts an all-Taskforce Potluck as an opportunity for our Taskforce committees to meet and talk about their plans for the year and to welcome new Taskforce members.

Whether you're currently serving on the Taskforce or just curious, we welcome you to drop by to meet fellow volunteers, committee chairs, and office staff.

This year our Annual Taskforce Potluck will be on Sunday, April 28th. The location is yet to be finalized, but will be announced shortly!

We'll have a lunch/social hour from 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and then meet from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. We will start with a brief overview of each committee and then break out into smaller groups for committee meetings.

Please RSVP to our Facebook event listing by clicking here. While there, please also indicate what you plan to bring to the potluck (entree, appetizer, salad, dessert, or beverages).

Please click here to learn more about the Taskforce prior to the meeting.

The Volunteer Relations Committee is looking for people to improve the volunteer experience at Reading to Kids. If you have ideas or motivation, we can use them at our next Volunteer Relations Taskforce Committee meeting which will be between April 22nd and April 28th.

To help decide the exact date and time, please email Nancy Lyon ( your interest and available times during those days.

This can be a great way for you to get more involved with Reading to Kids by joining the Taskforce.
