In 1987, the Nevada Department of Education began a statewide initiative for Nevada teachers and librarians to celebrate reading through shared thematic activities. Nevada Reading Week usually begins during the last week of February and coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss on March 2. Many of our local celebrities, parents and community members participate in the festivities by telling stories and reading to our students.
Nevada Reading Week for the 2021-2022 school year is February 28-March 4, 2022. The theme is Catch the Reading Wave!
