Family Reading Partnership of Chemung Valley

provides books and literacy outreach programs to children and their families.
We commit ourselves to fostering a community in which all people experience
the joy of reading as part of everyday life.

Our programs bring reading into the lives of children and families from infancy
through school years. Join our quest to build a community of life-long learners.

Join us for the 10th anniversary of

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record®,
October 22, 2015

a global campaign that generates public support for high-quality early learning and highlights the importance of building children’s vocabulary and love for reading. On October 22, 2015 children and adults worldwide will take action by participating in the world’s largest shared reading experience. Each year, Jumpstart selects one children’s book as the catalyst for Read for the Record. This year’s campaign book, Not Norman: A Goldfish Story, written by Kelly Bennett and illustrated by Noah Z. Jones, is a humorous tale about a child who finds a new friend in an unexpected place. With vivid illustrations and expressive language, the story is sure to engage children and adults of all ages. Help us break the world reading record (again!) for the most people reading the same book on the same day.

"A Book on Every Bed" is an activity the Family Reading Partnership of Chemung Valley is promoting to encourage family literacy. Giving books is an exciting way to mark special days for family members. Those special days can be birthdays, the first day of school, days that mark special achievements, holidays such as Valentine's Day--or just a day to say "I am thinking of you." A book on every bed requires only a simple gesture. As gift givers, readers choose and wrap books that would mark holidays or special days for receivers--especially children--then place them on receivers' beds to greet them as their special days begin, ideally on multiple occasions throughout the year!
