Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Even though Saturday was the first day of summer vacation, 452 kids, 232 volunteers, 88 parents, and 25 teachers & staff helped to make our June 8th reading clubs a success!

Another Author Read With Us!

On Saturday we were also delighted and proud to have long-time Reading to Kids volunteer Andrea Loney, the author of Take a Picture of Me, James Van Der Zee!, read aloud with us her 3rd grade book!

She joined us at Politi to read to the kids there, and above you can see her being "photographed" by one of the kids in her group!

July 13TH READING CLUBS

Help keep the kids reading during the summer by signing up for our July 13th reading clubs! RSVP for our Summer Fun & Games reading clubs here.

Our summer reading clubs are smaller, so sign up early. Please also join our July 13th Facebook event so your friends will see that you're attending and you can invite them to join you!

Mark your calendars for our August 10th reading clubs, too!
