Working as a community to promote positive social change is one of the goals of this reading initiative. With that in mind, we encourage you, as a local resident, to consider volunteering in the community. Volunteerism is the core of each and every sustainable community.

Community organizations are actively seeking individuals with the necessary skills and experience who are willing to offer their services and work on a full or part-time basis without compensation on projects or in positions that benefit the organization itself or the people it serves.
