Last Friday I attended a volunteer orientation at Open Books, a Chicago non-profit organization and used bookstore that promotes literacy in the community.
I’ve been itching to do some volunteer work for a while, but hadn’t quite found the right cause for me. That is, until I wandered into their bookstore on a leisurely afternoon, fell in love with the cause, and signed myself up immediately to get involved!
I believe being a literate person is not only one of the framework skills of successful people in this country, but it opens up an entire world of imagination and possibility for children (and adults!).
Check out their website to find out more about their programs or volunteer opportunities. I’m thrilled to start working with them! Happy Monday!
