Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our April 14th reading clubs are the day after tomorrow, and we still have a few spots remaining.

If you can join us this Saturday for some Amazing Animals & Interesting Environments, visit our website TODAY and sign up! You can keep checking our website for openings today and tomorrow until 3pm.

Veteran volunteers help out with logistics

Ready to play an integral role at our monthly reading clubs? We also need experienced volunteers to help train new volunteers, be a GLC or Check-In Helper, or especially be a second or third Site Coordinator at any of our schools.

Please e-mail us at info@readingtokids.org to help create wonderful reading clubs!

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