Registration for the 2021 Forest of Reading Program Open!

Registration is now open for the 2021 Forest of Reading program! The low one-time annual fee allows you to run all 10 Forest of Reading programs with as many readers as you want – whether you have six readers, or 600!

Despite these challenging times of new routines, limitations, and role changes in libraries and classrooms, we hope you will find a way to make the Forest a part of your programming this year in some capacity.

The Forest is driven and funded by registration fees, and is designed to provide quality online literacy and reading engagement resources that can be used at home, in the classroom or library with registration.
