October 27, 2022 — The Hampton Mayor's Book Club is asking for additional volunteer readers for the 2022/2023 school year.

It promotes early reading as a core value for children by providing free books monthly, between September and May, to all pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, as well as organized readings and books to all pre-kindergarten through first-grade classrooms in the city of Hampton.
In response to these needs, the Mayor's Book Club is urgently looking for volunteers to read to classes elementary school classes across the city of Hampton.
Volunteers must complete a new reader orientation before they can begin reading to classrooms. If you are interested in volunteering for this critical program, email the program coordinator, Sandra Chong.
