An annual statewide celebration of family reading.

If your publicly-funded school or public library is holding at least one event celebrating family, literacy, and community during the month of November for Idaho Family Reading Week, you may register to receive paperback books and additional literacy resources for the children and families you serve.

This year is all about folktales, fables and family story telling.


Program reqistration is open

September 1st - November 3, 2017

The first 70 libraries to register will receive additional resources, so start planning your Family Reading Week event!

As of 10/13, we have received 116 requests for this program and are therefore out of supplies for this program. The application will remain open as advertised if you want to still register your event (this will help give us a better idea of demand for this program for next year) and, of course, the free resources linked below are available for all to use. Thanks for understanding!


Participating libraries will receive:

  • Paperback folktale books for the children and families you serve
  • 5-6 hardcover multicultural folktale books for your organization
  • Access to the additional program resources, such as promotional posters, storytime outlines, parent & teacher resources, booklists/bookmarks, and activity ideas, will be available on this webpage in early September for all libraries.

Program Requirements:
