Local Chapters

The Children's Reading Foundation is a grassroots effort to assure every child receives the lifelong advantages of literacy. Caring community leaders sustain this simple yet enormously powerful message. They understand that we must enable every child to succeed if we, as a society, are to succeed. And in order to succeed, children must learn to read early and learn to read well.

Each community-based Children's Reading Foundation responds to the unique needs and opportunities of its region by reaching out to parents, and others who provide primary care for children, with information, resources, activities and encouragement. It establishes partnerships to promote early literacy activities and programs throughout the entire community. "Where today will someone hear the message to read with a child?" is the question that guides a relentless public awareness campaign. Reading Foundations access free and low-cost books and put them into the hands and homes of children who will cherish them.
