Being a reader and being a good citizen often hand-in-hand. If you're a reader looking to make an impact, you're in luck because there are so many great literary organizations that need volunteers just like you! By working together, book-lovers can use reading and writing to improve our communities and touch the lives of others.

There is so much important work that can be done by volunteering at a literary organization. Many of these organizations are only possible because of the work done by volunteers, and any task you do is immensely helpful. (And usually fun!) You can read with students, and help encourage blooming young writers. You can pitch in at events, or help organize resources. With your unique skills and preferences, you have something special you can bring to the table, and the world will be better for it.

No matter where you are, there's an organization nearby that can use your help. And if it's hard to leave your house, you're isolated, or you're constantly on-the-move, you'll see that many of these organizations are also looking for work that can be done remotely, such as video editing or help with their website.

It's time to dive in and make the world a better place. Volunteer with one of these amazing literary organizations, and you're certain to make a huge difference.
