National Young Readers Day

Nov. 14 is National Young Readers Day!

To celebrate, schools across the country are invited to host "celebrity"” read-ins where local heroes - whether it be a fire fighter, policeman, someone in the armed forces or any former young reader - to read a favorite children'’s book!

National Young Readers Day is a day that was created by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress in 1989 as a way to celebrate literacy.
