“Having access to learning resources outside of the classroom is crucial to the development of children across the region, particularly now with so many schools teaching virtually,” said James Taylor, President & CEO of United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg. “We’re happy to be working with our incredible network of community partners to bring more Little Free Libraries to the area and restocking existing ones with resources for children and families to utilize.”

Here are the events that still need volunteers:

At these events, volunteers will need to wear face coverings and and contact with other volunteers will be minimized as much as possible. Groups of 2-4 people who are comfortable being close together are encouraged to apply.
