Become a Virtual Reading Hero for Young Students (K-5)

Imagine being the beacon of inspiration for young minds! Our Virtual Reading Initiative invites you to step into the role of a virtual reader, sharing the magic of books with K-5 students who have been yearning for meaningful interactions with literature. Here's why your participation is so crucial:

Purposeful Reading: As a virtual reader, you have the opportunity to transport young students into the enchanting world of literature. Your engaging readings can foster a lifelong love for books, ignite imaginations, and boost their literacy skills.

The Impact of COVID-19: The pandemic has disrupted the traditional classroom experience, leaving many young students without the joy of in-person library visits and storytime sessions. Now, more than ever, they need access to engaging stories and the warm presence of reading mentors.

Open Books for All: We've curated a collection of open books from the public registry—books that are free to be shared and cherished. By volunteering as a virtual reader, you're ensuring these stories find their way into eager young hearts.

Your Role as a Virtual Reader: Simply put, you become a virtual hero. Through video recordings, you'll bring stories to life, infusing them with your passion and enthusiasm. Your readings will be a source of comfort, inspiration, and education for children who may be missing out on these vital experiences.
