Since 1992, the support of thousands of individuals, businesses and community partners has made it possible for us to provide Oregon kids with two critical ingredients for literacy and learning success: shared reading time and access to books. As we think about SMART Reading’s story and those who have played essential roles in our success, we also turn our focus to the stories of our volunteers, donors, partners and friends – your stories are ours.

We are encouraging anyone whose life has been touched by SMART Reading to tell us your story. From a couple sentences to a few paragraphs, from formal to informal, from funny to sad to heartwarming – whatever your experience, we want to hear about it. Your story will be shared via this website, and may be used in materials.
