Come Read with the People in Your Neighborhood!

Who doesn't love a good book? NEARI is celebrating reading and literacy at our annual event called Read Across America! Join us on Leap Day, Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 10:00am-4pm at Warwick Mall.

Celebrating 23 Years of Diverse Readers!

Join us on Saturday, February 29 from 10am - 4pm at Warwick Mall for the annual Read-a-thon to celebrate reading! We have celebrity readers all day for a read-a-thon, a book giveaway, raffle prizes, a make-your-own craft, an opportunity to visit and pose with characters, and so much more! 

Read Across America focuses the country's attention on how important it is to encourage children to read. Since NEA launched the event in 1997, more than a million Americans have participated each year in events across the country.

Volunteer! New members are always welcome to join us. Email Stephanie for more information.

2020 Read Across America Guest Readers

You're never too old, too wacky or wild, to pick up a book and read to a child."


A Promise to Read

I promise to read
each day and each night.I know it's the key
to growing up right.

I'll read to myself.
I'll read to a crowd.
It makes no difference
if silent or loud.

I'll read at my desk,
at home and at school,
on my beanbag or bed,
by the fire or pool.

Each book that I read
puts smarts in my head
'cause brains grow more thoughts
the more they are fed.

Come rain or come shine,
snow, wind or sleet,
each day of the week
reading's a treat.

So I take this oath
to make reading my way
of feeding my brain
what it needs every day.
