Promise to Read
Nov 7 - Nov 18, 2016
In 2015, 173 community members, businesses and organizations read to nearly 400 classes.
We recognize that not everyone has unlimited time to volunteer. But we are thankful that, every year, hundreds of people have time to read to our children. Promise to Read brings Katy's business community into elementary schools each November, allowing adults to share their love of reading and allowing children to indulge their love of being read to. From Alcott to Zalbern, wockets in pockets to monsters in closets, guest readers sit down in little chairs in front of little faces and the room is transformed. Promise to Read is a tradition in Katy with many of our readers having participated since the program's inception in 1997. Some bring their own books from home – others let the librarian or teacher choose one for them. But in either case, everyone agrees it's the best 30 minutes they'll spend all week.
