Virtual Stockton Rotary
Read-In Week

February 22-26, 2021

Due to COVID-19, this year’s 30th Annual Rotary Read-In event is pivoting to a virtual event in 2021 and will be held during the week of February 22-26.

Since we cannot go into the schools and read to K-3 students in-person this year, we would like to ask our loyal readers to film themselves reading an age appropriate book and upload their video to our private YouTube channel. This way, teachers and families will be able to access these videos at any time during Virtual Stockton Rotary Read-In Week and throughout the remainder of the school year after that.

We are asking for volunteers to digitally record themselves reading an age appropriate book and then upload it onto our YouTube channel at “Virtual Stockton Rotary Read-In”. Download helpful instructions for self-producing your video HERE. If you have any questions about making your video, please contact us at iwanttoread@rotaryri.org.

As for purchasing books and donating them to the classrooms this year, we will be sending out announcements in January about where you can drop-off books, which our committee will then distribute to classrooms in coordination with the County Office of Education and our various local school districts. Check out our Suggested Book List.

Please pass this email along to anyone that you think might be interested in contributing to this year’s Virtual Stockton Rotary Read-In.

Thanks,

Jim Dugoni
