Rockbridge Reads! seeks to enhance the lives of all people living in the Rockbridge area by nurturing a culture of learning.
Rockbridge Reads! is United Way of Rockbridge's own collective impact program. United Way of Rockbridge board members work with families, schools, and other organizations in the community to develop activities that promote early childhood literacy.
This past year, book drives were held and the books were distributed to children at the Rockbridge Community Festival and Mountain Day in Buena Vista. Books were also distributed to the Health Department, Rockbridge Area Relief Association and The Community Table throughout the year.
Each year, Rockbridge Reads also hosts A Day in K, where families gather together with their rising kindergarteners to celebrate preparing for school.
Here is a video created as an introduction to kindergarten:
