Read Across Kenosha Event

In 2022, the event featured prerecorded readings, like this one with Mayor Antaramian!

United Way of Kenosha County is excited to once again celebrate Read Across Kenosha. The 13th Annual event is taking place on Thursday, March 2, 2023 in conjunction with National Education Association's Read Across America. This year’s event is returning to the exciting in-person event volunteers might recognize as Readers Are Leaders day. Volunteers will meet for a kickoff event at 8 a.m. in the community room at Kenosha Human Development Services (3536 52nd Street). Get involved by becoming a volunteer reader at the link below!

The Books

The 2023 book selection features diverse authors and titles, guided by National Education Association’s recommendations for Read Across America as well as suggestions from Kenosha Unified School District. Books encompass a wide range of everyday lessons and heart-warming stories that are directed towards specific grade levels.

Support Read Across Kenosha

We are asking for your help. Make a gift to United Way of Kenosha County to help us provide all classrooms with one of the books being read. A ten dollar donation will put a book in the hands of students and will also support United Way’s ongoing education programs. Thank you in advance for your support of this community literacy initiative!
