Research has shown that individuals who read at a high school level tend to have higher incomes, acquire better jobs, and are healthier than those who do not read at that level. Simply put, the ability to read is necessary to manage life effectively on a day-to-day basis. Our program wants to encourage everyone to take time out of their schedules and either read a book for themselves or to someone else. Reading is fun!
