Mission Statement

Ready Readers expands literacy for young children in low-income communities through high-quality books, strong relationships, and literacy related experiences.


Ready Readers is an early literacy program that inspires preschool-age children, ages 5 and under, to develop a love of reading. Ready Readers places volunteer Readers in early childhood classroom settings located in low-income communities. These volunteers read high-quality children’s literature to the same children each week in order to develop strong, meaningful bonds with the children in their class. In addition, Ready Readers gives each child 7-8 brand new books annually to take home and enjoy again and again.

Ready Readers is preparing our low-income, preschool children to become readers. Because, kids who read succeed in school, work and life.
