The club recently awarded a grant to Countryside Academy to pilot the techniques recommended by the Reading Now Network.  The program is titled: Readers for LIfe and will focus on one 2nd grade classroom.  The funding will allow a mini-library in the classroom with specially selected books for guided reading.  Having the books in the classroom will maximize the time allocated to reading.  Volunteers are welcome for a once per week interaction with a student or a small group.  The club hopes the project will validate the approach and thereby justify expanding to more classrooms.
