Literacy is very important to the development of your community. People who struggle with literacy have difficulty communicating their needs and expressing their opinions. Together we must help the illiterate overcome the obstacles that plague their lives. Between the Grinds is an excellent place to begin positively impacting the literacy rate in your community.
Reading Between the Grinds
Volunteer at our weekly literacy program. Reading Between the Grinds is dedicated to improving the literacy in our community. These weekly classes are fueled by our volunteers and certified educators. Everyone works together to empower the individuals struggling to overcome illiteracy. Give us a call to schedule a volunteer session.
Read to your Children
Studies have shown that reading with your children greatly impacts their literacy rate. Committing to a daily story time with your children not only helps them learn to read, but also forges a family bond. For more facts about children’s literacy, please visit the National Education Association site.
Bring your child to Between the Grinds. We have an interactive Story Time every day at 5pm.
Donate your Books
Between the Grinds is always accepting book donations. We even accept magazines and comic books. All donations are used to stock our library and fuel our reading programs. The community thrives off of your generosity because Between the Grinds offers all donated reading materials free for the public’s perusal.
