Santa Fe’s Ready to Read

Read to Read

On Saturday, October 14, May Center co-hosted an event in the Railyard with the Santa Fe Birth 2 Career Collaborative shining a light on the importance of building a strong foundation for reading. The event included a free carnival for children, a children’s book giveaway, a story corner, reading to tiny horses, a literacy provider fair, and more. May Center students collaborated with National Dance Institute to put on a flash mob style dance at the event, and Mayor Javier Gonzales read to the crowd and helped us light the water tower up red for reading! Thanks to all who helped with this event, and thanks to our sponsors for their support. This spring, Santa Fe’s Ready to Read will put on a week of Read Aloud events across Santa Fe, focused on building a culture of reading in our community.
