One book can change a child’s life. Imagine what 14 can do.
Each year in communities across Oregon, SMART Reading brings together thousands of adult volunteers and students aged PreK to third-grade to connect over books. As they read together, they share countless laughs, adventures, and discoveries, and establish a love of reading and learning. To foster reading outside the classroom, SMART Reading provides each student with 14 books to keep throughout the school year.
We give away more than 150,000 books to kids in communities across Oregon each year. Over the past 26 years, SMART Reading has paired 134,000 volunteers with over 211,000 Oregon kids for reading support, and has given away more than 2.7 million books.
We need your support to provide these life-changing gifts for children.
