Birmingham Reads October 18, 2018

Better Basics presents Birmingham Reads each year to inspire all of Birmingham to pick up a book and read.

Birmingham Reads Day is scheduled for Thursday, October 18,2018 at 1 p.m. Birmingham Reads is an event held each year when hundreds of volunteers visit students in pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade classes in Birmingham City Schools to read to the children. Each class is assigned a volunteer reader, and each student receives a book to take home to start, or add to, his or her home library.

For more information or to sign up to read at your favorite Birmingham City elementary school, contact Amy Howe at
