Help someone learn to read

Here is an excellent volunteer opportunity: get to know someone with a different set of challenges, help this person with a skill he may use anytime, anywhere and even improve his self-image, and in the process gain a sense of satisfaction for yourself.  It begins this Thursday, April 8, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Octavia Fields Branch Library, which is hosting a training session for volunteer literacy tutors.  It continues with weekly tutoring sessions at any branch library.  You can arrange these according to your schedule.  Ask at the library (281-446-3377) or contact Steve Zach at 713-749-9035 for more information.
