illustration of girl and dragonCounty Executive Latimer is launching the “Westchester Loves to Read” initiative to promote the benefits of reading at a young age.

Open to students County-wide in grades Pre-K through 5, this reading initiative asks students to log their reading time beginning starting Oct. 1, 2018 and ending on May 5, 2019. Students who read 4,000 minutes during that time, or roughly 15-20 minutes a day, will receive a free pass to Playland Park’s Opening Day. It’s as simple as that. Read. Log. Win.

Print your “Westchester Loves to Read” materials and watch our YouTube video. Spanish language materials also available.

Contact County Executive Latimer’s Communications Department at (914) 995-2900 with your questions.
