Read Across America
Central New York Chapter
Please join the Central New York Chapter in celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Members will be reading to children in local schools. Please sign up today to read to a classroom of children!
We have partnered with two local schools to send our volunteer readers: 1) Main Street Early Education Program (205 S. Main Street, North Syracuse) and 2) VanDuyn Elementary School (401 Loomis Avenue, Syracuse).
The slots are each 30 minutes, but you may finish up earlier. Please plan to arrive at the school at least 10 minutes early to allow time for parking and visitor sign-in procedures at the main office, as well as transit to the classroom.
You are welcome to bring your own book or use a book chosen by the teacher. The CNYWBA will be donating money to the school’s library or buying books chosen by the school librarian. Remember that Read Across America is a celebration of Dr. Seuss, so Dr. Seuss books are encouraged (but not required)! For more information on Read Across America,
