Read Aloud Training Coming To Hillsboro Library

Hillsboro, WV – Reading aloud to a child can open the door to a whole new world of wonder and imagination. The High Rocks Academy “Use Your Noodle” after school program is partnering with the Pocahontas Family Resource Network to bring a Read Aloud training to the county for all interested parents and community volunteers.

The Read Aloud West Virginia program trains and recruits volunteers to read to children in-school, after school and during community summer programs. This is the second round for Read Aloud training in the county – the first was in June of 2010.

Mary Kay Bond, one of the founders of the Read Aloud program and now the Executive Director will lead the training seminar at the Hillsboro library. She also did the training last year at the Linwood Library.

The Read Aloud training seminar is scheduled for February 3rd at the Hillsboro library from 4:15 to 6pm. There will be supervised homework help provided for children in grade K-5. No registration is required, but if you have questions, please contact JP Perry at 304-653-4187 or
