Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We still have a few spots available for our popular Mysteries & Adventure reading clubs this Saturday, so please
sign up or keep checking today and tomorrow for openings.
(If you are signed up but can't attend after all, please
click here to cancel
before 3:00 p.m. tomorrow so someone else can read!)
We're also excited to give away a refurbished computer to one lucky student at four of our partner schools! Thank you to all who
donated computers to us, and please let us know if you can donate a computer or tablet for our other schools.
Note about MacArthur Park: This weekend MacArthur Park Elementary is closed while the campus is
being painted, so please consider volunteering at any of our other 7 schools. Our reading clubs will return to MacArthur Park Elementary on Saturday, Feb. 10th!

At this Saturday's reading clubs we would love to give away a computer or iPad to one lucky kid at each school.

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please reply to this email for details.
