Read Aloud West Virginia helps to raise a state full of readers.
Read Aloud West Virginia was founded in 1987 by a group of Kanawha County parents. That year, they held a showing of a film by Read Aloud advocate Jim Trelease. Read Aloud West Virginia recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and was given a two-year Benedum grant to help counties around West Virginia start or expand their programs.
