March 14th and April 11th Reading Clubs Postponed,
May 9th Reading Clubs Not Yet Confirmed

Updated 4/13/2020 at 12:10 PM PDT

In light of the latest developments with the COVID-19 coronavirus, and based on the advice from our partner schools and the LAUSD posted at https://achieve.lausd.net/latestnews, we have postponed indefinitely both our March 14th and April 11th reading clubs on our partner school campuses. We are not yet sure if our May 9th reading clubs will be held.

We always follow our schools' lead when it comes to the reading clubs, and under these circumstances we certainly agree that it is best for all that the reading clubs not occur on the campuses until the schools re-open.

Notably, March 2020 is the first time in the almost 21-year history of Reading to Kids that no reading club happened on the second Saturday of the month at one of our partner schools.

Having already purchased the read-aloud books for the March and April reading clubs, we will read them aloud at our next two reading clubs after our partner school campuses re-open, and will then donate those books to our partner schools for use in their classrooms and libraries.

We very much appreciate your desire to share your love of reading with the kids, and we are exploring ways we can be of service to our partner schools remotely. We will resume our monthly reading clubs on their campuses when the schools advise us it is appropriate to do so.

We will continue to monitor the above website for any further clarifications that we will post here.
