book2Our volunteers are our most valuable resource. Book’em has more than 200 volunteers who serve as reading role models in area pre-schools through our Ready for Reading program, reading role models in elementary schools through our Reading Is Fundamental program, and others who help with our Books for Nashville Kids program, in the office and with special events.


Research shows that access to books and reading aloud to children greatly increases their ability to learn to read.

If you are interested in being a reading role model volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Application  and the Volunteer Policies and Guidelines form.
