In partnership with our valued supporters, we aim to continue growing so that Reach Out and Read is integrated into pediatric care in every clinic throughout the nation.

We welcome applications from clinical sites that wish to become an official Reach Out and Read site.

Reach Out and Read's impact is magnified and enhanced by the work of thousands of volunteers nationwide.

Our dedicated volunteers can help support programs in their communities by:

  • Donating books (both new and gently-used)
  • improving literacy-rich waiting rooms
  • Reading aloud to children at select program sites.

The Reach Out and Read intervention receives broad bipartisan support in Congress.

In December 2015, Congress passed the Every Student Succeeds Act into law. This law authorizes the Reach Out and Read model in federal education policy for the first time.

Fifteen states currently invest in local Reach Out and Read affiliates, providing critical funding for books and infrastructure.
