Read To Me Day

November 9, 2023

*Date is subject to change*

Reading to children helps stimulate their imaginations, contributes to language development, and helps to encourage early literacy. So why not share your love of reading?

This fall, United Way’s Read to Me Day is expanding to all Akron Public Schools elementary classrooms. Volunteers will visit schools throughout Akron and read stories to kids. In Medina County, volunteers will aloud to children in classrooms across Medina City Schools. Grab a book and join us for a celebration of the joy of reading! Each level provides the opportunity for one volunteer to read aloud to children in an elementary school classroom.
