Mission

This City Reads! is a community alliance of organizations to champion and leverage the power of reading to promote the future success of families, individuals, and businesses in Greater Akron/Summit County.

Vision

Summit County/Akron is the Reading Capital of the World. What’s possible if all our kindergartners are ready to learn to read? What’s possible if all our third graders are reading to learn?

This City Reads!
Partners believe:

Reading is everyone’s business

An information-based economy requires everyone to read

Reading soars when family, school and community collaborate

First you learn to read, then you read to learn

Reading is essential to improving quality of life

Reading is fundamental to responsible citizenship

This City Reads! Goals

Leverage impact

Engage the community

Connect individuals and families with resources

Champion the collaborative model
