Reach Out and Read is a nonprofit organization of medical providers who promote early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Recently representatives from the Fairview Clinic  visited the Chisago Lakes Area Library with Curious George and ECRL’s mascot, Sherlock.  Following the short program children received free board books from the Reach Out and Read program, parents were given early literacy information and kids were able to pose for pictures with both Curious George and Sherlock .
