Any time of the year is a good time to build a culture of reading. The beginning of the year is PERFECT...whether it's back to school in August or starting the new year in January!
If that isn't your cup of tea, then maybe it's starting a new reading initiative at school and you kick it off with building a little campus reading culture.
Maybe it's just that you decide NOW is the time, whether it's September, October, November, December, January, February, March or April...
Bottom line...ANY time is the PERFECT time to build a campus-wide culture of reading.
Why Build A Campus Wide Culture of Reading?
Ask everyone to put their reading life on display.
Everyone has a unique readerly life...even the 'I hate to read' crowd or 'I don't ever read' crowd.
EVERYONE reads something!
It doesn't have to just be the latest and greatest novel. Or the NY Times bestseller. It could be technical journals. It could be online news. It could be anything! It could be newspapers, magazines, recipe books!
Reading drives everything!
