News item: Read In Week 2022

From October 3 to 7, schools across the Division will celebrate the 33rd anniversary of READ IN Week in Edmonton. This annual event highlights the importance of reading in schools, libraries, workplaces and community organizations. 

This year’s READ IN theme is Choose Your Own Adventure!

READ IN Week is a special time for our schools to welcome volunteers to share their love of reading with students and staff. From mystery to fantasy and everything in between, there’s a book to inspire the joy of reading at any age.

For the first time in two years, schools will once again welcome guest readers in person, with the option for virtual readings as well.

How to get involved

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.

To find a class to read to, you are encouraged to contact a school directly.
