The Rotary Read-A-Long Program has:
• read to over 17,925 children
• donated over $147,000 worth of books to school libraries

To use the resources of Rotary to inspire children with the enjoyment of reading.

What is the Rotary Read-a-Long Program?

At the heart of this program is a schedule of reading days in which Rotarians read to elementary school children in the classroom. On a typical reading day a single school will be visited by a team from the Read-a-Long program, the team might include Rotarians, police officers and athletes with the Memorial University of Newfoundland Sea-Hawks. Every class in the school will be visited by a reader who will read a story book for about half an hour and then stay and talk with the children about the importance of reading and the role of Rotary in the community. In addition to reading, the Rotary club donates a significant number of books to the school library.

MUN Sea Hawks Join the Read-A-Long Program

This creates a positive role model for children; they see a member of the adult community outside the school system committed to literacy and reading, and find a new and interesting selection of books with local content in their library.
