National Reading Day is an annual event which celebrates and encourages reading by younger children. National Reading Day is celebrated in thousands of schools all around the United States. This literacy event is designed to help Pre-K through Third Grade students develop the literacy foundation they need to become lifelong learners. Schools, libraries, nonprofit groups, and parents participate in a variety of activities with younger readers on National Reading Day.
The United Way of Forsyth county, in support of this event, is donating over 120 books to the Prosperity Center, but our bookcase is now empty so we are asking the community to help fill it with new and gently used books for children age 12 and under.
Books may be brought to the United Way Offices beginning January 23 from 8-5 through January 27- those books will then be donated to elementary schools in the area.
