Illinois Reads 2020

 

A Reading State of Mind

 

Illinois Reads was introduced by the Illinois Reading Council in March 2013. The initiative encourages people to read books by Illinois authors. Each year, the program offers a new list of books at six different age levels. Illinois Reads kicks off in March and concludes in November with “Family Reading Night,” an annual statewide event.

 

Anderson's is a proud partner of Illinois Reads!
