Read-In | SC's Premier Children's Reading Event

Stay tuned for information about the 2020 Read-In

This annual event, sponsored by the South Carolina State Library and the South Carolina Association of School Librarians, lets students show why kids who read succeed. Registered student groups gather in the State Library’s parking lot at 1500 Senate Street between 9:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The parade to the State House begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. and the route follows Senate Street to the State House. At the State House there is a brief program followed by reading in small groups. Each group is responsible for providing their own reading materials, banners, or signs. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character and bring their favorite book to read on the State House grounds after the event. The Read-In ends at noon and buses are not permitted to leave until 12:30pm.
