Reading Together

Volunteers meet one-on-one with a student in grades 1st-5th for one hour per week for one school year. The goals are to foster an enjoyment of reading, and create a positive mentoring relationship. As a literacy tutor, you will develop rapport with the student and support their individual growth and engage with literacy activities and games. Tutors must be proficient in reading and writing. Most of the students come from families who speak English as a Second Language and are underperforming in reading tests at school.

Volunteers communicate to the Reading Together Coordinator your available hours and desired library location, and you will be paired with a student who has the same availability. This program allows for volunteers to see students' growth over the school year and communicate progress to parents and the Reading Together program.

Reading Together Locations: Merriam Park, Dayton's Bluff, Arlington Hills, Sunray, Rondo and Rice Street Libraries. Sign up today!

Mission Statement

We welcome all people to connect, learn, discover and grow.

Description

Our Values

The Library belongs to the people of Saint Paul. We are your Library and you - our library users - shape our work. The following values guide our work.

We believe that learning is a human right.

To live, adapt, and thrive in a constantly changing world, all people need supportive learning environments and free access to information and ideas from diverse points of view.

We believe in curiosity.

Curiosity can change the world and the path of one’s life. We believe in igniting its spark through discovery and creative exploration.

We believe in connection.

The Library is a place for quiet reflection and boisterous activity; for likeness and for difference. It is comfortable, inclusive, and vital to creating healthy, strong communities.

We believe in the power of belonging.

When people feel they belong, they are able to learn and grow. The Library brings people together to access knowledge, information, and connection. We actively work to ensure that all people see themselves and our city’s rich diversity reflected in our libraries.
