An important goal of the Portland Reading Council is to promote literacy in our community. We fund projects throughout the year in local schools and community organizations.
Do you have a project needing financial support?
Funded projects include:
• Increasing number of Spanish library books in dual language program serving 300 students
• Supporting a K-8 school to start their first Oregon Battle of the Books program
• Creating a lending library and sharing literacy activities with families at an apartment complex in Gresham • Donating books to a new lending library for Latino families at Alberta Rider Elem. • Supporting local high school students who read books, wrote reviews, and donated the titles to Street Books, a bicycle-powered lending library for the homeless
