Read.

You're reading a blog ... so you obviously enjoy literacy on some level. Why not spread the love and volunteer to participate in reading circles at our friendly Downtown high school? If it sounds like the answer to your New Year’s resolution to be a better human being, here's the press release from Amy Biehl:

Literature Circles: Connecting Youth and Community through Literature

The Amy Biehl High School Literacy Volunteer Program is looking for adults who love to read, care about youth and want to read and discuss literature with a small group of teens once a week for an hour. Literature Circles are an integral part of the Humanities curriculum that offers adults and teens an opportunity to share language and story together.

ABHS still needs volunteers for the following literary circle hours:

Monday:

8:25-9:20

9:40-10:50

Thursday:

8:25-9:20
