Become a Volunteer - Make a Difference

Crosby Branch Library is seeking literacy volunteers to work with adults who speak English fluently and read at a fifth grade level or below.  Tutors receive free training as well as books and materials.  Students and volunteers meet at the library at a mutually convenient time, working one on one to develop reading skills students would like to apply in their own lives.

Want to make a difference in your community?  Volunteer as a literacy tutor, and get back as much as you give!

For more information, please contact the library at 832-927-7790.
