Welcome to Let's Read!
Let’s Read is a Waterloo Region-wide program that encourages families to read together. Each year, a different book is selected for families across the region to share. Join us for FREE family programs and events held indoors and outdoors, often in unexpected places.
The program launches annually at Kidspark in August and concludes on Family Literacy Day in January. The selection for this year is Edmund Unravels by Andrew Kolb. Let's Read gratefully acknowledges the support of TD Bank Group in our family literacy campaign.
Let's Read Funding Announcement - July 2016
TD Bank Group, a strong supporter of children's literacy, is sponsoring Let's Read again this year! With this funding, free copies of Edmund Unravels will be distributed to families. Families in Waterloo Region will be reading together and have their own copy of the book to keep. When books are readily available at home, children score higher on reading tests and are more interested in reading for pleasure.
Since its inception in 2009, the Let’s Read Family Literacy Initiative has been generously supported by a number of community agencies. Past sponsors include:
