Chancellor Fariña today announced the launch of NYC Reads 365, a new multi-year citywide literacy effort to promote a City that reads every day, in and outside of our schools

“Reading opens doors and expands opportunities for our children, in and out of the classroom,” said Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña.

“For me, reading Spanish fairy tales with my father as a young girl inspired a love of books and a love of learning, and ultimately inspired me to become a teacher. As we give New York City students and families resources to make daily reading a reality in their lives, I know that we are going to be a better city for it. I ask all New Yorkers – not just students and families – to join me in promoting NYC Reads 365 and promoting the importance of reading.

NYC Reads 365 challenges New Yorkers to read every single day. Read for pleasure, read to find out, read to argue, read to persuade, read to laugh, read to cry, read to understand, read to forget. Help us create a new generation of readers. For more information, read the press release.

Reading is an essential life skill. It is an everyday, anywhere activity. Without the ability to read well, children are limited in what they can accomplish. A person who reads well has the ability to own his or her learning process.
