February 2 is World Read Aloud Day

Celebrate the power of reading

The thirteenth annual World Read Aloud Day is Wednesday, February 2, 2022.

World Read Aloud Day stresses the importance of sharing stories by encouraging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort, created by the non-profit LitWorld and sponsored by Scholastic, is celebrated annually in over 173 countries and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud in all of our communities.

Do you have a favorite book to read aloud? If not, here are three different lists to inspire you:

Scholastic Book Picks

LItWorld Staff Reading Suggestions

OutSkirts Press Book Picks

Go to our catalog on our website and place one or more of these books on hold to read out loud on February 2. Or stop in your branch and ask a librarian to suggest some books you can read aloud.
