For more than 30 years, Nevada Reading Week has been celebrated across the Silver State in March to promote a life-long love of reading. This year, Nevada Reading Week will be held the week of February 27-March 3. The theme for Nevada Reading Week is One World, Many Stories.
Teachers and students can find thousands of ebooks for Reading Week through Book Connection, a collection of resources about books for children and teens that includes a readers' advisory tool, resources for homework help, author interviews, and more.
