COVID-19 update: Some Reading Friends projects have been temporarily suspended or will be running over the phone or virtually instead. You can contact your local coordinator to see what opportunities are available, however please be aware that responses may be delayed. In the meantime, take a look at our Stay Connected! resources which give you tips, activities, ideas, links and resources to support you during this time.
