Campaign for Grade Level Reading Webinar: Access to Children’s Books

Jun 26, 2024    |   Upcoming Webinars

The research is clear: literacy outcomes improve when young children have access to books and other age-appropriate, high-quality reading materials. 

Join this free webinar, hosted by the Campaign for Grade Level Reading (GLR), to learn how innovative nonprofits are overcoming “book deserts,” book bans, curriculum changes, and library closures, ensuring that children have ready access to books in their homes, schools and the everyday places they frequent with their families. Event participants will learn about the science, too!
