Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Thanks to our SUPER volunteers, the June 8th "Super Heroes and Super People" Reading Clubs were a big success - we had 622 students, 286 volunteers, 90 parents, and 17 teachers and staff in attendance!

Get into the summer spirit and sign up for our July 13th "Independence and Growing Up" Reading Clubs TODAY. The summer reading clubs are small, and spots move extra quickly so be sure to sign up ASAP.

After you sign up, please visit our Facebook event so that your friends will see that you're attending and you can invite others to join you!
