Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

Teens, are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer in your community?

If so, we would like to encourage you to join the Reading Boosters program at Mid-Continent Public Library! Reading Boosters is currently offered at several MCPL branches, including Antioch, Liberty, and North Oak.

The Library has partnered with Turn the Page KC to offer this reading buddy program for students from kindergarten through third grade. Teen volunteers from the A+ Program are trained to encourage young readers and to build their confidence. We volunteer at the Liberty Branch Reading Boosters program offered on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Volunteering gives us the opportunity to make a difference in our community by encouraging students to develop a love for reading. Mid-Continent Public Library has blessed our lives with resources, programs, and community. We are excited to have a chance to pay it forward while enjoying books with new friends.

We hope you will consider becoming a Reading Booster!
