Back to school season is upon us and volunteers are needed to assist Bookspring in their mission to help children develop a passion for reading and promote literacy among tens of thousands of youth in our area.

A variety of volunteer opportunities are being offered in your area. You can do things like support a librarian, “adopt” a classroom to share a story with a child, assist with special events and much more. Most volunteer opportunities occur during the school day, so individuals with weekday available are especially needed.
