Alvernia READS will be hosting its first reading with South Reading Youth Initiative at Saint Peter's Church in Reading on October 19th. Sheriff Weaknecht will be present to interact with the kids and give them freebies from the Sheriff's Department. Additionally, we have 20 wonderful student volunteers from Alvernia who will be devoting their time to reading with the kids and giving them free books at the end of their visit. Stay posted for pictures!
Next, we'll be visiting a 1st grade classroom at Tyson-Schoener. This will the first of many visits to this 1st grade classroom, as we'll be working with them on a monthly basis this entire year. We're very excited to get to know all these young students by reading with them, completeing fun literacy activities and of course, giving them books to add to their home libraries.
Remember--if you'd like to get involved just email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Holleran Center to talk to Ali.
