The Friends of St. Thomas Public Libraries’ Day Care Reading Program is seeking volunteers to spend an hour a week reading to toddlers.

We have the books and will introduce you to a center. All you need are your smile, enthusiasm, and a desire to do good for our children! Hours available are between 9:00 am and 11:00 am weekdays. It’s so much fun helping children to develop their love for books!

If you are interested in being a part of this program, or if you know of a Day Care Center that could use a little love, please contact Carol at (340) 643-5377!

Read to a group, make it fun, introduce new words, great characters, exciting stories and concepts and enjoy watching those eager young minds light up.

If you work, maybe you can get the hour off and make it up by staying late or going in early.

If you’re a stay at home mom, take your child along.

If you’re retired but travel sometimes…some is better than none or pair with someone.

This is such a vital activity. You can change a child’s life. And it is so much fun for everyone. Please call (340) 643-5377.
