DANBURY, Conn. -- The United Way of Western Connecticut is seeking volunteers in the Danbury area to read to local preschool children as part of the "Ready, Set, Let’s Read!" program.

An informational session for new volunteers will be held Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m. at the Danbury Library.

The session is an opportunity to network with current volunteer readers as well as to receive a tour of the children’s section of the library with Youth Librarian Cynthia Lappala. 

“We are so pleased to provide our Ready, Set, Let's Read! program in our community again this year,” Casey Levene, director of volunteer services at UWWC, said in a statement. “With the help of a dedicated group of volunteers, we are able to continue support of preschools in the Danbury School Readiness Program, including Head Start Northern Fairfield County, The Right Place Salvation Army, YMCA Children’s Center Bethel and Interfaith Early Learning Center.

"It is a wonderful reading program that seeks to foster the love of reading with children and their families.”

Those interested in volunteering can contact Casey Levene at casey.levene@uwwesternct.org.
