Mission Statement

Foster the love of reading in elementary school students. Come join us, read to elementary school students, and give each one a new book of their choice!


Everybody Reads is a volunteer reading and book gifting program run entirely by volunteers since early 2001. The Tzu Chi Foundation has generously funded new book purchases since the beginning of our program. Anonymous donors have funded program operations and supplemental new book purchases since 2010. Everybody Reads volunteers read to elementary school students and give each student a new book of their choice. Our Everybody Reads team currently consists of Noble Elementary School staff, members of the Tzu Chi Foundation, and other community volunteers.
