School's out, but the fun continues at KRS' July Saturday Reading Program with POETRY MONTH! After the regular reading hour, kids will be joined by our special guest speaker -- a poet -- who will share her poetry and then lead the kids in writing poems of their own! Come join us for an event where words, creativity, and fun will intersect for an unforgettable summer morning!

BACKGROUND CHECK: Because KRS works with children, we are required to do a background check on all volunteers. Thus, before you can volunteer at KRS, you must complete a new volunteer application and bring with you to KRS' sign-in a form of photo identification (e.g., a driver's license) for background check purposes. Please fill out a new volunteer application online here before coming to volunteer.
