We envision a community engaged in reading from childhood through adulthood.

ReadOKC is an initiative of the OKCPS Compact, led by Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation. Our mission is to instill the love of reading in the students of OKCPS and in our community.

Primary Goals of ReadOKC:

  1. Organize reading challenges during school breaks, with a goal for every student to read 20 minutes per day.
  2. Recruit caring adults to serve as Reading Buddies.
  3. Improve access to reading materials for all of our children. ReadOKC Little Libraries and ReadOKC On the Go! are part of this effort.

Host a ReadOKC Book Drive!

Would your office, neighborhood, church group or civic organization like to gather books to donate to ReadOKC? Host a book drive! Books donated through the ReadOKC Book Drives will help further ReadOKC’s goal to increase access to reading materials for all children and families in our district. These books will help supply the inventory of books for the ReadOKC On the Go! Mobile Book Bus and the ReadOKC Little Libraries.

Hosting a Book Drive is Easy
