Leading Readers – Captain William Spry

Leading Readers is a program that pairs teen volunteers in the community with elementary school children ages 5 - 10 who are struggling or reluctant readers. These pairs meet once a week to read together, play educational games, and explore books through fun activities.

Are you:

  • 15 - 18 years of age?
  • available Tuesdays from 3:30 - 5:35 PM from October 2 to December 4, 2018 (10 weeks)?

Why you should become a Leading Readers Volunteer:

  • Do you love reading? Love kids?
  • Do you want to give back to your community & develop leadership skills?
  • Do you want to help a child practice reading, play games & share the joy of reading!

To apply

Fill out a Youth Volunteer Application (also available at the Information Desk at the Library) and drop it off.
