Reach Out, Read Out!
Virtual Storytime Series & Book Drive

We hope that you enjoy this collection of book readings by Erie patients, team members, friends, and neighbors. We created this series to share our community's love for reading and also raise awareness and support for Erie's Reach Out and Read program, which provides young patients and their families access to books and resources that increase early literacy.

Building early habits around reading is critical for success in school and beyond, and it strengthens bonds between children and their parents. But for many Erie families, access to books can be a challenge. You can help!
