Our eight-week Summer Reading Program could not run without our volunteers in Childrens and Adult Services, who “man” our signup desks every hour we are open in June and July! We call them S.T.A.R.S. (“Summertime Assistants Really Shine!”) and they are. And there is more: our teen volunteers who read with emerging readers in our “Read2Gether” program are literally growing a community of readers every summer! Some extra fantastic volunteers work in Childrens, Teens AND Read2Gether! Whew! They have lots of energy, and we appreciate it!
We absolutely LOVE this summer’s 607 volunteers, in grades 6-12, who have promoted 2012’s Summer’s Reading Progam theme, “READING IS SO DELICIOUS!” And the amazing fact is that 251 of them volunteered last year as well. Some of these fantastic teens have worked in our Summer Reading Program for many years.
THANKS TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS! You make us proud. Summer Read ends on July 29th and we will miss working with you in the fall.
