Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

This month, 887 kids, 372 volunteers, 70 parents, and 18 teachers & staff helped to make our final reading clubs of the 2014-15 school year a success! Saturday's clubs were our biggest May reading clubs in six years!

Sign up quickly for our June 13th reading clubs! Our summer reading clubs will be smaller, so there will be fewer volunteer spots available.
