Glenview School District 34 and Glenview Public Library continue their partnership to create reading opportunities with free transportation to the Library for K-2 EL (English Learners) students and older siblings. As part of this program, EL students read with volunteers, check out books, and participate in the Summer Reading Program.
We are looking for volunteers to read with students on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for six weeks in June and July this year. Volunteers meet at the Library from 12:50 to 2 PM. Find out more and fill out this form to participate.
