16th Annual Read to Me Storyteller Event

Read to Me Early Literacy Program

Wednesday, May 13, 2020
8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Thanks to the regional effort of our donors and volunteers last year, the Chamber purchased nearly 1,500 hardcover read-aloud books to replenish the libraries of participating schools — impacting 116 classrooms in 25 schools this year.

Contributions will provide classroom lending libraries and book bags to Philadelphia public schools for the 2020 – 2021 school year, teacher workshops for best practices on early literacy, and reading tips to parents and caregivers.

During the Chamber’s 16th Annual Read to Me Storyteller Event, participating storytellers will spend the morning reading a selected book to a classroom of Philadelphia school children following a networking breakfast with other business and community leaders.

The Chamber’s Read to Me Early Literacy Program is a proud partner of Read By 4th, a citywide campaign that brings together an ever-growing coalition of partners to get all children reading at grade level by 4th grade.
