Reach Out and Read Volunteers

Our Reach Out and Read Sites need adult volunteers. Reach Out and Read reading volunteers are based in the doctor's office waiting room and engage a child or children of any age with books and reading aloud, and make it fun! In addition, volunteers model for parents the pleasures and techniques of reading aloud.
