Reading Matters!

To celebrate the importance of reading, we have named two weeks throughout this year as Reading Matters weeks. During these weeks, we’ll encourage volunteers, donors and supporters to share the SMART message loud and proud.

Our first Reading Matters weeks are Nov. 17-21 and April 12-18, in conjunction with National Volunteer Week.

Here are ways that SMART volunteers and supporters can participate:

  1. Wear your Reading Matters sticker given to you by your Site Coordinator following your reading session.
  2. Change your social media profile picture to a SMART image (see the image below).
  3. Take a selfie of you and your favorite children’s book and post it on social media with the hashtags: #shelfie and #readingmatters.
