Read early. Read often. Read early birthday logo


Over 750 people including families, early childhood and community service representatives, volunteers and community leaders helped celebrate the 6th anniversary of the launch of the Read early. Read often campaign on March 7. The event was a tremendous affirmation of the importance of all the early childhood and early literacy work that is happening in our community.  It was also an amazing testimony to our extremely collaborative community! 

SPECIAL THANKS to more than 50 local sponsors for their support of this event! Presented by Muskegon County’s Great Start Parent Coalition and in honor of National Reading Month.
