22nd Annual Celebration!

Since 1998, Ready to Read has celebrated national Stand for Children Day with a special story hour to focus community attention on the importance of sharing books with young children.

Raising Community Awareness

Kalamazoo County preschoolers, their parents, teachers, and child care providers are invited to Bronson Park to hear stories read by community leaders and costumed story book characters. Each child receives healthy snacks and juice and a gift book courtesy of Kalamazoo Public Library.
