The SLO Friends of the Library Volunteer Reading Program has been offered for several years to benefit one of the schools in our district – Hawthorne Elementary School. It has been quite successful, thanks to committed volunteers.
The program is fairly simple, teachers request volunteers for certain days and times. Then the volunteers find the times that fit their schedules and commit to them for the current school year. Usually, it is an hour or less at a time, with each volunteer listening or reading to each assigned child for about ten minutes or so.
To become a Hawthorne School Reading Program volunteer, you can obtain a School Volunteer Application to complete and take into the Hawthorne School Office – 2125 Story Street, SLO - 596-4070. After that you will be sent a link to our on-line “Sign-up Genius” form that will show the teacher’s requests and gives a volunteer the opportunity to sign-up!
