Was storytime one of your favorite times in school growing up? United Way of the Brazos Valley has an opportunity for you to help with story time in classrooms around the Brazos Valley. Reading Day 2021 will be a fun way to still “bring volunteers into classrooms” without posing any health risk to students, volunteers or teachers.
In celebration of Dr. Suess’ birthday in March, United Way will open a library of virtual story times read aloud by local community members for Pre-K to Third Grade teachers to utilize in their classrooms.
Follow these four easy steps to be one of our virtual volunteer readers:
Step 1 – REGISTER

Step 3 – Record
Using your cell phone, a Zoom call or other recording software, record yourself reading a children’s book aloud. If using a cell phone, please record in landscape mode.
Step 4 – UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO
Once your video is done, upload it to our Google Drive folder no later than February 25.
Thank you for joining United Way in sharing the love of reading with children across the Brazos Valley!
