Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Thank you to everyone who has already signed-up for September 11th's reading clubs! If you couldn't RSVP because of space limitations -- good news! We have expanded the number of groups at each school, and we need more volunteers. Please take a moment now to RSVP before they fill up again.

If you have signed up for the September Reading Clubs, but learn you will not be able to attend, please cancel so that someone else may take your place.
