Business of Reading 2014

All reading times are from 8:30-9:00 AM.
Calling all readers!  The Business of Reading Festival, a much anticipated community celebration of reading, will be held November 17-21 at the Conners Emerson School.  Over one hundred readers are needed to ensure the success of the Festival. Participation requires only a half hour of your time and most guest readers enjoy the experience as much as the students.  Volunteers are assigned to a specific classroom to explain who reading is important to their work and to share a favorite book or passage with the students.  The organizing committee hopes that people from all walks of life will consider volunteering their time to this worthy event.  If you are interested in sparking a child’s interest in reading or helping to make a connection between reading and your work, please join us the week of November 17.  For more information or to register, please contact Amanda Dyer (adyer@mdirss.org, 299-4467 x1013) or Siobhan Ryan (sryan@mdirss.org, 288-4467 x 1040).
