Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

May has arrived and with it our Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales reading clubs on May 11th! Sign up to volunteer today!

We still need 35 more readers, so help spread the word by also joining our May 11th Facebook event

We especially need more of our experienced volunteers to help as GLCs, Training Coordinators, Check-In Helpers, & Site Operations Helpers. You can read about those roles here and email info@readingtokids.org if you want to help in any!

Site Coordinator Jessica Lee has been volunteering since 2008!
