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!

Crosby Book Club Meets Friday, July 19 @ 2 pm

Mark Watney is marooned on Mars.  A violent dust storm has forced his crew to abort their mission.  Thinking him dead, and with no time to lose, they left the planet. 

The storm also destroyed the mission’s communication systems.  Mark has no way of letting anyone know he’s still alive.  Maybe he won't be much longer.

Utterly alone on a hostile planet, Mark must find a way to survive against impossible odds.

Crosby Book Club will meet to discuss The Martian, by Andy Weir, on Friday, July 19, at 2 pm.  Copies are available for check out at the front desk.  New members welcome!
