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.

Did you know that there is 'debris' floating around in space outside of the Earth's atmosphere? Ever watched some come through to Earth? Anytime you see a Meteor or a Meteor Shower in the sky, best seen at night in a dark sky, that is what you are witnessing, some of that 'debris' (mostly dust and rock) falling and/or tumbling to Earth. Scientists were excited to tell the public that the annual Geminid Meteor Shower, normally seen in December of each year, was expected to be bright and spectacular this year, and one to watch December 13, 2017. Our new highlighted book for READ ALL ABOUT IT - STEM is a non-fiction book entitled, How the Meteorite Got to the Museum – written and illustrated by Jessie Hartland. For book reviews, the Brevard County Library link to the book, other holiday books that include math, go to the "Programs" page of this website and select "STEM Book".
