Can you help encourage a love of reading and inspire passionate readers?
We’re all readers! This year, READ IN Week runs from October 2 to 6. This annual event highlights the importance of reading through events in schools, libraries, workplaces and community organizations. Although literacy and learning events occur throughout the year, READ IN Week is a special time for our schools to welcome volunteers to share their love of reading with students and staff.
This year’s READ IN theme is: I’m a READER. I read for ME!
I’m a reader. I read for me, is about cultivating a love of reading and creating passionate and engaged readers. It celebrates the uniqueness of our reading lives and helps sparks a positive reader identity. We are all readers!
When did a book last take you on a journey or spark your imagination? When did you last read a story so incredible or so memorable that you couldn’t wait to tell someone else? Help inspire that same excitement and imagination in a child. Come read with us during READ IN Week!
Anyone can participate in READ IN Week! In previous years, we’ve welcomed athletes, politicians, authors, parents, students and community members to classes across Edmonton. Volunteer to read in a Kindergarten to Grade 12 class at a school near you.
