RGV READS: District/School Wide Reading Campaigns GoalsWe are building a list of titles for RGV READS. Please, submit a title depicting life on the Texas/Mexico border.Librarians' Big Read (Spring 2015)Students' The Big Read (Spring 2015)
The Big Read is a program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts to restore reading to the center of American culture. The premise of the program is to develop community-wide reading programs centered around the shared reading of one book.
For the purpose of RGV READS, our Library Advisory Council has selected one title per campus level. Providing a Big Read opportunity will allow Region One students to participate using culturally relevant literature about the border region where they live.
