Children's Literacy Network

Children's Literacy Network's in-person BookPALS program is continuing during the 2024-2025 school year in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti! The program will share the joy of reading and encouragement of reading confidence with local 2nd and 3rd grade students while practicing crucial literacy skills. The highly-loved program is in need of volunteers that are available during the school day for in-person volunteering at local elementary schools. Please continue reading for more information on the volunteering experience with in-person BookPALS.

  • All books and resources are provided, we just need YOU!
  • We are looking for volunteers who are interested in volunteering in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor on Mondays-Thursdays during the school day.
  • If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer for 1-2 hours during the work day, or have time to give during the week, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!
  • Training is provided and no experience is necessary, just a kind heart, love of reading, and open mind.

Please contact Program Manager, Caitlin, at caitlin@childrensliteracynetwork.org, for information about the school's location and how to sign up!

About Children's Literacy Network

Mission Statement

Growing Readers for Life! Children’s Literacy Network’s mission is to design and implement literacy-based programs to provide equitable opportunities for children to develop a love of reading and books. We are a volunteer-based nonprofit agency established in 1991, dedicated to closing the book and reading achievement gap to keep low-income students from falling further behind their more affluent peers. Children's Literacy Network (CLN) accomplishes this goal through innovative programming at the early childhood and school-age levels.


For 31 years CLN has provided literacy programs to 400,000 young readers in Washtenaw County, distributing more than a million dollars in new high-quality books to low-income children, creating home libraries for families who need them most. CLN’s current continuum of services and the growth in scope and programming could not have been foreseen by CLN’s founders. Nevertheless, the original goals of the organization remain the same. CLN’s services are useful and empowering for parents, and critical to narrowing the achievement gap between students of different neighborhoods and resources. CLN is committed to meeting ongoing literacy needs, and is dynamic and determined to work with community partners to meet emergent and urgent needs.
