FEBRUARY 9TH READING CLUBS
Join us at the February 9th Reading Clubs. Please click here to RSVP.
We have a great selection of "Friendship" themed books for this month. Click here to see the list of books and craft ideas!
Do you have an extra toaster taking up space in your closet?
Donate it to Reading to Kids!
Reading to Kids is looking for toasters to use for breakfast on the morning of the reading clubs. As you may know, we get donations of bagels for reading club Saturdays, and we would like to give volunteers the opportunity to toast those bagels!
Please contact Jessica.Tritsch@readingtokids.org if you have a toaster to donate.
