For 25 years, Northwest Connecticut’s Chamber of Commerce has coordinated the Annual Read Aloud Day. The Read Aloud program, is designed to stress the importance of reading to elementary school children throughout the Northwest Corner.
The sponsor of the program provides funding to purchase library quality books that are selected by a group of library media specialists and language arts consultants from local schools. Community volunteers are recruited to spend a part of their morning visiting an elementary classroom in the Northwest Corner. Each grade level is assigned the same book title. The volunteers read aloud the books and then leave them as a gift to the classroom library. It was a great morning!
