The Imagiread Way
JUST WHAT IS IMAGIREAD? Imagiread is the nation's only multi-dimensional interactive family literacy platform. Here, we implore families to take stock in literacy one book and one event at a time. Both our vision and mission are related under one umbrella which is one we affectionately refer to as the Imagiread Community Literacy Initiative Series. Formal announcements for the lineup have been disseminated and are underway. The series is considered all things family literacy fun and our guests are our proof. Our first physical event in the series this year was The 2nd Annual World Book Night Garden Celebration. It was a book lovin' good time with loads of excitement. We are currently pressing onward with the finishing touches on our Summer Series and seeking community partners to make it book love supreme. If you are, or know of, one please contact us. We can't wait to make Imagireading magic with you!
