Fort Worth residents have long recognized the importance of reading, learning and self-improvement. For more than 40 years, the Fort Worth Library has hosted an annual summer reading challenge to support those values. We believe it is now time to expand the program beyond its traditional two months.
Strong readers are essential to the city’s future, and strong readers are created by reading 365 days a year.
Worth Reading (#wr365) brings together libraries, schools, businesses and community organizations in a united effort to provide everyone an opportunity to become a reader and a lifelong learner. We hope you will join us in creating a bright, productive future for Fort Worth and its residents.
