Thursdays, October 17th to December 12th
4:00 to 5:00 p.m.   

Advanced registration required; space is limited. Register online, in person, or by phone.
No charge.

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 this program is intended to improve literacy skills and interest in reading; it does not teach children how to read.

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

 

Student Volunteers Needed!

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

To sign up or for more information about ways you can volunteer, please visit our Student Volunteer page.

 

Registration

Please fill out this form if you are interested in Reading Rangers, and Library staff will contact you at the end of September!

Please note that submission of the form does not constitute registering for the program. The number of registrations available is dependent on availability of student volunteers.
