To instill the love of reading in the students of OKCPS and in our community


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

Primary Goals of ReadOKC

ReadOKC is an initiative of the OKCPS Compact, led by Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation.

  • Reading Buddies and Book Clubs
  • Access to Reading Materials
  • Reading Challenges

How to Get Involved with ReadOKC:


Reading Buddies and Book Clubs

We recruit caring adults to serve as Reading Buddies and Book Club Leaders. Become a ReadOKC Volunteer and engage with a small group of students on a weekly basis. Enjoy reading with them and serve as a mentor in their lives.

Access to Reading Materials

We improve access to reading materials for OKCPS children through the ReadOKC On the Go! Book Bus and Little Libraries. Volunteer on the Book Bus, lead a book drive, or serve as a steward of a Little Library.

Reading Challenges

We organize Reading Challenges for OKCPS students during school breaks, with a goal for every student to read 20 minutes per day. Support our Reading Challenges by providing incentives!

Help OKCPS students this winter. Donate to Coat-a-Kid, so no child in need goes without a warm coat.
