Volunteer to Read

1Rolling Readers programs make a positive impact on more than 5,000 at-risk Brevard County elementary school children by encouraging a love of reading. Local business people and dedicated volunteers visit classrooms each week to read aloud, work individually on reading skills, or meet with small groups of children to conduct fun, hands-on activities that reinforce reading.

Strengthening literacy skills benefits a child’s overall educational and personal growth, increasing their likelihood of high school graduation. It also leaves volunteers with a sense of fulfillment, knowing they helped a child in such a profound way. Our unwavering commitment to the Rolling Readers mission depends on volunteers to make it happen. For just an hour a week, you can change the course of a child’s life.

Lockheed Martin’s S.T.E.M. Book Of The Month

Lockheed Martin’s S.T.E.M. Book Of The Month Read All About It is a S.T.E.M. Related Books Program sponsored by Lockheed Martin. Each Month Rolling Readers highlights a S.T.E.M. book, providing information about the book and its relationship to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It was the "Summer of Mars" during June and July at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex this year. As one of the most fascinating planets and one that scientists believe could have been habitable at one time, we place our focus on the planet Mars for August. We have chosen the book, "Messages from Mars" written by Loreen Leedy and Andrew Schuerger, and illustrated by Loreen Leedy, as our highlighted book of the month. For book reviews, the Brevard County Library link to the book, other books about Mars, go to the "Programs" page of this website and select "STEM Book".
