A unique volunteer opportunity reading to preschool children in Redwood City

Original post made by JoAnne Wetzel, Palo Verde, on Jun 20, 2006

The Redwood City Public Library is looking for volunteers to read to preschool children once a week as part of itsTraveling Storytime program. Volunteers learn how to perform a storytime for children from birth to five, then are assigned to read once a week at a home day care or preschool in Redwood City. This is a volunteer commitment of only 30 minutes a week, but in that half hour, Traveling Storytime volunteers help children develop the preliteracy skills they need to succeed in school. The Traveling Storytime was honored this spring by the San Mateo County Reading Association for its exemplary service in the promotion of literacy.
