Read Greenville is a community wide awareness program designed to help spread the word about the importance of reading daily. Through a collaborative partnership with local organizations, Read Greenville educates the community about the importance of literacy, provides strategies and ideas for engaging children and adults, and gives the tools necessary to create a literacy filled world for our residents.
As part of Read Greenville, Greenville County citizens and supporters are asked to advocate for and take part in reading daily. Businesses, schools, nonprofits, and organizations will be asked to participate by encouraging their families, employees, and clients to pick up a book! Also, people are asked to post on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram what they are reading and tag with #ReadGreenville.
