A citywide reading celebration,
October 3 – 7!

In a city as diverse as Oakland, students need opportunities to see themselves – and all of their classmates – in the books they read. During the week of October 3, schools across the city will celebrate Latino writers and illustrators with a range of reading-based activities, including:


• Volunteer read-alouds in classrooms
• Family Literacy Nights
• Cross-grade buddy reading


Last year our 1st Annual brought 150 volunteer readers into 60 schools across Oakland, and we hope to top that this year.


Be a reader at one of our schools the week of October 3 – 7. Sign up here
