Sandusky Reads is a community-wide reading project to develop a community built around the shared experience of people reading and talking about the same book, which can strengthen bonds and build connections between people of different cultures and economic and educational backgrounds. We hope you join us. We are grateful for two grants received in support of this initiative: one from the Erie County Community Foundation and another from The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Erie County. Grant funding will pay for copies of Wes Moore’s books, which will be distributed to participating schools and community groups.


To register for a program you can stop by the Children's Services Desk, call 419-625-3834 and press 0, or click on the Events Calendar image in the upper right corner of this page.
