From Oct. 7-11, schools across the District will celebrate the 30th anniversary of READ IN Week in Edmonton. This annual event highlights the importance of reading 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 Celebrate with Stories!
To celebrate, you could join a book club, treasure that new book smell, pass on your latest great read to a friend or share a story with a child in your life. No matter your approach, we are all readers!
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.
