Volunteer Reading Program

Women United has collaborated with local elementary and preschools on a volunteer reading program to help kids with homework and reading. Some students need the extra one-on-one time to complete their homework and to build reading skills at their own pace.

Here are the volunteer opportunities currently available:

  • Hayden Totally Kids needs volunteers on Tuesdays and Thursday from 4:30pm-5:30pm to help students with reading and homework.
    HAYDEN SIGN UP
  • Soda Creek Elementary needs volunteers on Monday from 3:15pm-4:30pm to help students with homework and reading.

  • SOROCO Preschool needs volunteers in the classroom on Wednesdays during the school year from 9:00am-10:00am to read with small groups.

Imagination Library

Women United Launched the Imagination Library in Routt County in January 2018 to give all children in our community access to literature before entering school.

All children in Routt County age birth to five years old can sign up to receive on free age-appropriate book each month mailed directly to their home.

Reading to children during these key development years helps develop language, comprehension, and a love of reading. Having books in the home increases the time families spend reading together.

SIGN UP TO RECEIVE BOOKS

Give the Gift of Literacy

  • $25 supports one child for one year, supplying the child with 12 books.
  • $125 supports one child from birth to age 5, supplying the child with all 60 books.
  • $1,250 supports ten children from birth to age 5, supplying each of the ten children with all 60 books.
  • Book Gift Program: With a donation of $250 you can gift the Imagination Library to a child who lives in an area that does not offer the Imagination Library and at the same time sponsor a child in Routt County.
