Rock Hill Reads is a community initiative focused on serving families with children, birth to age 8, in two census tract areas of Rock Hill (604.01 and 603) to increase early literacy by developing language and pre-reading skills as an indicator for future success and by sharing the joys of talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. Join us by training to become a Volunteer Reader. #rockhillreads
Volunteer Reader, if you would like to advertise when you will be coming to read in a location, please use the Story Time flyer. You may print it and fill it in to leave behind for families to know when you will be reading in a location. This would work well in locations such as barbershops, etc. You may use this at your discretion.
