Join the Read it LOUD! coalition in encouraging parents to make a difference in their child’s life by reading to them daily. We invite you to get involved through any or many of the opportunities below and to help us spread the word about the importance of reading.
Read every day to your children, grandchildren, and other young people in your care.
Schools, libraries and literacy programs in your community working to support children’s literacy may need your help. Type in your zip code and key words like “read” and “children” to check for local opportunities at www.volunteermatch.org.
