National Young Readers Week
Since 1989, National Young Readers Week has been an annual event held during the second week of November to raise awareness around the importance of reading.
We are continuing our tradition of challenging principals across the country to become shining examples for literacy by choosing one day to read their heart out all day long—from first bell to the last during National Young Readers Week. This event was co-founded by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, and it has been a tremendous success. Principals have risen to the challenge over the last several years reading everywhere from hallways, playgrounds, and rooftops on their chosen school day. Choose your day. Choose your reading location. Register your school. Use our media alert to spread the word to your local media.
