In the spirit of the Vision2Read campaign, the community is encouraged to add a book to their holiday gifts this year.

Add a book to gifts for family and friends and add a book when contributing to holiday toy and gift drives.

The gift of literacy is the gift of a better life. In San Bernardino County, 69 percent of third graders do not meet new California English language arts/literacy standards. Access to books profoundly impacts a child’s academic and career achievement.

Vision2Read is a year-long Countywide Vision campaign to help improve literacy throughout San Bernardino County by connecting people to literacy resources and volunteer opportunities. Read more about the campaign at
