The Tompkins County Public Library has recruited volunteers to help spread the love of reading and books.
The Reader Is In consists of a group of volunteers who are available to share stories with children of all ages during visits to the library.
Check our calendar to see when the next reader will be in. Parents can also look for the "Readers is in" sign in the Youth Services Department. If a reader isn't available, the sign will read, "Reader is out."
Library Staff present weekly storytimes because they understand that reading aloud to children develops both early literacy skills and a life-long love of reading; therefore are thrilled to have this opportunity to extend read-aloud time to their patrons.
For more information about this program please visit or call the Youth Services Department at 607-272-4557 EXT. 275.
If you are interested in volunteering for this program, please call the Library's Volunteer Coordinator at 607-272-4557 EXT 226.
The Reader Is In: Caregiver/Guardian Guidelines
Reading aloud is a wonderful way for your child to develop a love of reading and we are happy to provide reading volunteers (when available) during your library visits. However, the following procedures must be followed in order to make this the best experience as possible for your child.
