This story  from StoryCorps , told by beloved author Walter Dean Myers , is an excellent reminder that someone close to us -- a co-worker, family member or friend -- may desire assistance with reading, and also a reminder to never miss an opportunity to read aloud. Volunteer as a tutor through the library literacy program or call Literacy Advance of Houston or the Houston READ Commission . Dig Up a Good Book and read aloud to your young child or relvative in the library's summer reading club . Help an adult who has trouble reading because of a disability or impairment to sign up for the adult version of summer reading club , ReaderNation. They can meet the program goals by listening to books on CD, through the library's digital media catalog  or you can read aloud to them.
