Read Aloud West Virginia (RAWV) is a Charleston-based nonprofit organization that seeks to motivate children to want to read. RAWV is a statewide initiative that recruits and places volunteer readers in classrooms, works to educate the public on the importance of developing reading skills early in life and helps to distribute books throughout the state in areas of need. Most Read Aloud readers spend about 30 minutes in a classroom, but often become a highlight in the children’s school week.
The Greenbrier County Chapter of RAWV will be holding an orientation meeting for prospective volunteer readers on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 4:30 p.m. at the Greenbrier County Library in Lewisburg. It will be led by Mary Kay Bond, the executive director of RAWV. Anyone interested in reading in an elementary or middle school classroom on a weekly basis should attend this highly informative training session. For more information, call the Greenbrier County Library. Also, to learn more about Read Aloud West Virginia visit the website at readaloudwestvirginia.org.
