Encourage your children to discover how much fun reading can be! Reading Rangers is a literacy program for children in grades 1 to 3 who need help with reading or are reluctant readers. We pair children one-on-one with student volunteers who help them practice reading skills and play fun literacy games.

Please note that caregivers of children under the age of 10 must be present in the Library for the duration of the program.

Earn your community service hours required for high school! Please note that a three-month time commitment is required for Reading Rangers.
