The second installment of our One Richmond, One Book program has come to a close. One Richmond, One Book will be occurring each fall and spring for ten years. This spring, students, families, teachers, and staff read Cleo Edison Oliver, Playground Millionaire by Sundee T. Frazier.
Over the summer, each student will receive one more book as part of our Superstar Summer Readers program. Our generous sponsor, Capital One, and their employees have been helping us prepare materials for the for the Superstar Summer Readers book give-away…
Capital One employees enthusiastically helped us pack over 13,000 books across multiple days. Students will receive a book, pencil, fruit snack, and some tips for families about reading aloud.
We couldn’t have made this program a reality without the help of Capital One and their generous employees! Their help with this program supports literacy across our city.
It is an honor to bring One Richmond, One Book and Superstar Summer Readers to Richmond and we are grateful for the dedicated volunteers, community members, and sponsors who helped make it happen!
