Historical Background of Nevada Reading Week: For more than forty years Nevada Reading Week has been celebrated across the entire state - from small rural communities to larger urban areas. Activities often include book studies, author studies, literary readings by renowned authors, book fairs, and family literacy events. The stewards of Nevada Reading Week include PK-12 school librarians, educators, the Nevada Department of Education, the Nevada State Library, public libraries, community leaders, students and their families. Nevada Reading Week serves to promote a life-long love of reading. From students in Pre-Kindergarten listening attentively on a circle rug to their teacher’s riveting read-aloud to high school seniors engaging in rigorous discussions about a novel, the joy of reading is evident. Each school year begins with the selection of a specific theme that often reflects the spirit of the times. Once the theme is announced, it serves as a vehicle for leading a year-long campaign that culminates in the final celebration during the first week of March.
