Arline Broberg (pictured above), administrative assistant in the Department of Thoracic Surgery, reads the book Mr. Lincoln’s Way by Patricia Polacco to a bilingual second grade class at The Tobin School. The students appear to enjoy the book as much as Broberg, who is a first time volunteer with the Brigham Book Buddies Program. Iris Escoto, a second grade teacher, watches her students engaged by Broberg’s storytelling charm. “It was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to visit the class again next month,” said Broberg.
More than 25 BWH employees volunteer with the Brigham Book Buddies program, spending an hour each month reading to more than 20 classes. For more information about the program, call ext. 2-5759.
