This fall Mayor Craig McFarland will expand the Mayor’s Reading Club, now entering its 24th year. In addition to recruiting volunteers who read to students in area schools, the program will also offer an incentive program to encourage K-3rd grade students to read outside of school.
Volunteers will visit the classrooms, sharing their love of reading with students. In addition, the Library Bookmobile will visit schools throughout the school year to deliver free books to students who have met their reading goal. Volunteers are scheduled to spend up to one hour each month reading in 2 to 4 classrooms on a specific day.
Volunteers can apply to the program online or they can pick up an application in person at either library branch. Applicants must also complete a Casa Grande Elementary School District Volunteer Application prior to classroom reading. For more information, contact the Casa Grande Public Library at 520-421-8710 or email cglibrary@casagrandeaz.gov.
