Virtual Stockton Rotary
Read-In Week

February 22-26, 2021

This year’s 30th Annual Rotary Read-In event will be held virtually during the week of February 22-26, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, 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 Dropbox by clicking HERE.

Our Committee will review each submission and upload approved videos to our private YouTube Channel, which will then be shared with our local school districts and SJCOE. 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.  

Attached is a set of helpful instructions for self-producing your video. If you have any questions about making your video, please contact us at iwanttoread@rotaryri.org.

We ask that you please purchase and donate your book(s) at our local Barnes & Noble store at Weberstown Mall in Stockton. After the event, our committee will pick-up the donated books and distribute them to classrooms in coordination with the San Joaquin County Office of Education and our various local school districts. Check out our Suggested Book List at http://www.stocktonrotaryreadin.org/.

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

Thanks,

Jim Dugoni
