Reader Leaders Fall 2020

Nu Chapter's 2020-2021 Virtual Reader Leaders project started in October. Naomi East, Yvonne Barnhardt, and Carol Bostian joined Nu members' Rebecca Rowe and Allison Patton's classes on Zoom to read Berenstain Bears Visit the Firehouse. Amanda Moose, as a Catawba County Schools employee, was able to read in-person to Ellen Cline's class.

Our 2020-2021 Reader Leaders will continue in late January/early February. If you are interested in being a guest reader, contact Carol Bostian.
