Dear Raising A Reader Network,  

This has been another difficult week of widespread fires, extensive hurricane damage, and images of violence and unrest in communities. At the same time, it’s been a week of creative teaching, learning, generosity and solidarity. We hope you and your loved ones are well as we collectively make it through these challenges.

Last Friday’s Town Hall meeting was an informative roundtable discussion kicked off by two inspiring examples from the field. Leah Crosby, Charleston County First Steps, shared how they are implementing RAR rotation this fall and Nadia Lowe, Craven Smart Start, shared how they are bringing the RAR Book Collections into the virtual realm. To learn more, see the video below.

The Raising A Reader team
