It may be April Fool’s Day…
…But having fun at this Sibshop is No Joke! We’re serious about having fun and making friends with other kids that have brothers or sisters with disabilities.

Here’s a chance to connect with other adult sibs while getting into a book on your reading list or a new read.
Any Sib may join from anywhere in Wisconsin. Books will be chosen by participants and meetings are expected to be held once per month via Zoom.
Don’t always have time to read? Join us anyway and read when you can (or use it as extra encouragement to make time to read.) Be open to a world of posSIBility!
In the meantime, check out our closed WisconSibsREAD Facebook page.
