Do you love reading to kids? Become a BookReach volunteer!

BookReach is an early literacy outreach program of the Lewiston and Auburn Public Libraries. We match volunteers readers with small in-home daycares throughout Lewiston, Auburn and Minot. Due to COVID-19, our volunteers are reading over zoom, making every effort to support the children of our community and encourage literacy. Volunteers pick up a book bag from Lewiston or Auburn Public Library, to bring home a read over zoom. Have a big impact on kindergarten readiness by volunteering just one hour per week!
