Raising Readers in Story County

Harrison Barnes Reading Academy-School Year Tutoring


Supported by Ames High grad and current Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes, and partnering with the Ames Public Library, the Reading Academy is offered each Wednesday after school at the Ames Public Library in Ames to provide free tutoring to children in kindergarten through 3rd grade. Students work one-on-one with trained volunteer tutors to supplement their in-school reading activities and focus on at-risk readers specifically. If you are interested in volunteering for this program, please contact Lisa Reeves at literacy@raising-readers-org or call 515-520-8686.
