Spread the Word: Help Someone Learn to Read

Summer is a great time to relax and do more reading -- or to consider helping someone else gain basic reading skills. An opportunity to begin volunteering as a literacy tutor is right around the corner at High Meadows Branch Library, which hosts an orientation on June 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
