Read Across Arkansas Family Service Day
August 12, 2017: In partnership with AR Kids Read, Arkansas Department of Education's RISE Initiative, and the Arkansas State Library, citizens across the state will volunteer to read books to children at their local libraries and communities.
Libraries wishing to participate in Read Across AR can post their event on the VolunteerAR portal. Libraries may plan other activities that align with the day's theme such as library card registrations, book exchanges, and inviting local mentoring and tutoring programs to recruit long-term volunteers and youth program participants.
