Wellington Takes Part in National Read for the Record Campaign

Post Date:10/16/2018 8:00 AM

In celebration of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, Wellington’s Council will read books to hundreds of local children. As part of the world’s largest shared reading experience, Council will visit Wellington schools and parks and will appear on the Village’s Facebook Page and Wellington TV on Thursday, October 25, 2018 to read this year's campaign book, Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell.

“Wellington is proud to be a part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record,” said Anne Gerwig, Mayor. “We look forward to helping Jumpstart break another world record—and most importantly, inspiring kids to develop a love of reading.” 

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a national campaign launched over a decade ago to address the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for kindergarten.  Read for the Record inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers and organizations to take action toward transformative change in early education, and puts books in the hands of more children across the country. 

As another way to stay informed on the latest news and updates from the Village, residents are invited to sign up for Wellington information and updates at
