We hope that everyone is staying safe. As always, we are thinking of our amazing families, children, program coordinators and medical providers who help make Reach Out and Read the wonderful program that it is. While organizations and businesses move towards remote work temporarily, the Reach Out and Read team would like to provide resources to virtual learning opportunities for everyone in our network. We encourage you to share widely, and of course, we always welcome your feedback on how we can effectively support our community. You can access our resource list here.
