From October 2 to 6, schools across the Division will celebrate the 34th anniversary of READ IN Week in Edmonton. This annual event highlights the importance of reading in schools, libraries, workplaces and community organizations.
This year’s theme is READ IN Reimagined! Schools will welcome volunteers to share their love of reading with students and staff and reimagine what reading means to them.
Guest readers are welcome at participating schools for both in-person and virtual readings.
Anyone can participate in READ IN Week! In previous years, we’ve welcomed athletes, politicians, authors, media personalities, parents, students and community members to classes across the city. Volunteer to read in a Kindergarten to Grade 12 class at a school near you.
To find a class, you are encouraged to contact a school directly.
We want to see all the fun you have during READ IN Week! Tag your photos and experiences on social media with #ReadInWeek.
Find more information, including tips on how to read aloud, on the READ IN Week website.
