Reading Is Fundamental

Like Amazon or Netflix, VU is always acquiring new titles–for our reading cart! Last week through the joint efforts of Barbara and Bob, 25 new titles were added for the children’s enjoyment. Many of them are for beginning readers and given our voracious group of first and second graders, they will be well-worn in no time.

Reading and homework are the two pillars of VU. It’s really satisfying to watch a reluctant or struggling reader steadily gain confidence and develop skills and, finally, realize that they actually like reading after all. Volunteers are always welcome to help with reading so even if you’re not sure about your homework skills, listening is highly valued at VU. We’d love to have your help.
