My teacher then chose me at the end of the year when I accomplished the goal, I won a special Lunch with my principal.

Why choose to volunteer for Link to Libraries: Link to Libraries is such a wonderful organization with a great mission. I love being a volunteer, giving back to my community and making a difference in the world around me is such a rewarding way to spend my time, I deeply value education and believe that reading is very important to being successful in school, which is why I chose to volunteer with Links to Libraries.
