Join the Children’s Opportunity Fund in celebrating the role that schools, the community and homes play in supporting lifelong readers on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, at 11:30 a.m. ET for Read Across America Day in Montgomery County.
To celebrate, we are asking you to join us to highlight the role we all play in building a village that promotes the joy of reading!
