Saturday Reading Club


About Saturday Reading Club

Looking for a practical way to love your neighbors this summer? Free Grace Church is working with Every Neighborhood Partnership to host a Saturday Reading Club for children in our community. Volunteers will help combat summer learning loss by reading with children and providing a safe place to spend their Saturday mornings.

  • Who: Kids, ages 13 and under, and their parents

  • What: Kids will be able to borrow books, choose books to keep, and read with an adult reading buddy to practice their literacy skills. Kids can earn prizes for achieving reading goals. The top reader will earn a bicycle.

  • When: 10 am - 12 pm on Saturdays from June 10 - August 5

  • Where: Free Grace Church (3385 E. Shields Ave. 93726)

  • Why: our Saturday reading club will help kids practice their reading skills over the summer to prevent the "summer slump" before the next school year.

  • How: Register your child using this form.
