Reading week is sponsored by the Rhode Island State Council/International Reading Association and is celebrated by most public schools in the state during the month of April. The official dates are April 7-11, but every school is different, so contact your local school for more information. During reading week, schools promote literacy by inviting guest readers, hosting author visits, holding book fairs and book giveaways, and challenging students to read-a-thons.
