About National Reading Month

National Reading Month is celebrated not just to promote the love for reading but also to develop communication and learning.

The National Education Association (NEA) has been leading the Read Across America initiative since 1998. Read Across America Day calls upon everyone to read and engage with children to make reading a more fun and interactive experience. Libraries, schools, book clubs, and communities organize events to celebrate and promote reading.
