Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading skills. Sign up today for our July 14th Summer Fun & Games reading clubs and help encourage kids to continue reading all summer!

Our summer reading clubs are smaller, so be sure to sign up early. Please also join our July 14th Facebook event so your friends will see that you're attending and you can invite them to join you!



Reading to Kids is hiring a Literacy Coordinator through AmeriCorps for a 12 month position starting in August! The position is posted on our website, where you can read it by clicking on the Literacy Coordinator button below Latest News.

Please also share the above link to the position with anyone you think would be a good fit, especially if they have volunteered with us as readers or other roles!



Veteran volunteers help out with logistics

We need experienced volunteers to help train volunteers, be a GLC, or be a second or third Site Coordinator at any of our schools.

These smaller summer reading clubs are the best times to step into any of these important roles - all training will be pleasantly provided!

Please e-mail us at to help create wonderful reading clubs!



At our August reading clubs we would love to give away a computer or iPad/tablet to one lucky kid at each school.

If you or your employer have any working computers that are less than 6 years old running Windows 7 or later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please reply to this email for details to help make a kid very happy!
