Read Across the Bluegrass

Help us celebrate our 101st birthday this month
by joining us for Read Across the Bluegrass!


There are three simple ways to get involved:

    Record yourself reading your favorite children’s book! You can upload it to  the Google Drive here, or send it to by March 31st (iPhone or Android videos are great – just make sure lighting is good and sound is audible). Videos will be shared with classrooms across the Bluegrass.


  2. PURCHASE BOOKS for Central KY kids through our Amazon WishList.
    Books will be donated to children through local elementary schools and UWBG WayPoint Centers.


  3. DONATE $10 TO UWBG to support our fight for the literacy and education of all Central KY students.

Plan to submit a book video?

Here are the directions to follow:

  • Grab your favorite book suitable for elementary school students, turn on your camera, introduce yourself and tell the viewer why you chose this book. 

  • Read the story, showing the pictures when you’re able (voices and gestures are an added bonus!).

  • Tell the kids you hope they enjoyed the book and say goodbye.
