Stockton Rotary Read-In
February 29, 2024

This year’s 33rd Annual Rotary Read-In event will be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 10:00 a.m.

Please join us for this special opportunity to promote literacy among the children of our community by signing up for this event.  It only takes a half-hour of your time but provides children with a great learning experience and you with a very rewarding time.  You will be assigned to a K-3 grade class at a local City of Stockton elementary school.

As part of this commitment, you will need to buy an age appropriate book to read on this special day and then leave the book at the school as a donation.  Barnes & Noble is offering a 20% discount when you mention the Rotary Read-In at checkout and they have prepared a suggested list of books – see our website at

When you arrive you will check in with the office, often there is a hosted reception area so it's a good idea to check in early.  You will be escorted to your assigned classroom and then have about 30 minutes to visit with the children, tell them about yourself, and share your book.  Often they have lots of questions and the time goes by quickly.  Upon leaving, you will leave the book with the teacher to add to the school library.

If you can find time in your schedule to help us out we would love to have you.  There is no cost for registration - the only cost is the book you choose.  To sign-up, please contact Jim Dugoni at or (209) 607-9661.
