Rising Readers

Remember those children’s books from elementary school: Mike Muilligan and his Steamboat or Frog and Toad or Amelia Bedilia?  Volunteer to read for Rising Readers and you will be able to share your favorite children’s books with today’s first and second graders.


Monday – Friday, times are flexible; Volunteers spend an hour or so per week reading to children in Kindergarten through Second grade at George J. Mitchell Elementary School.  Volunteers must read at the same time every week.
