Marietta Reads! encourages Marietta City Schools students to read more, read better and read widely. This year marks the 16th Annual Kick-off for Marietta Reads! on the historic Marietta Square. Join us for performances from Marietta Schools groups, crafting, face painting, storytelling, balloon artists, appearances by literary and partner mascots, and the unveiling of this year’s One Book, by Superintendent Grant Rivera.
The One Book Marietta project was created to provide the entire Marietta community with a common experience of reading the same book, encouraging impromptu book discussions and shared inquiry between students, schools, and the general public.
Marietta Reads! activities throughout the year, such as the Annual Reading Bowl and daily reading incentives for meeting reading goals are supported through the generosity of donors and supporters. Sponsors can give the gift of literacy through donations that contribute toward the purchase of books, literacy supplies, and literacy programs in MCS schools.
