About Nevada Reading Week

In 1987, the Nevada Department of Education began a statewide initiative for Nevada teachers and librarians to celebrate reading through shared thematic activities. Nevada Reading Week usually begins during the last week of February and coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Many of our local celebrities, parents and community members participate in the festivities by telling stories and reading to our students. The theme for 2016-17 is "Camp READ - Nevada, USA." Nevada Reading Week will be celebrated the week of February 27 - March 3, 2017.
