Welcome to Reading Legacies

  • Reading Legacies’ mission is to facilitate supportive relationships for children through family and friends reading aloud with them.
  • Our vision is that all children will feel the security of caring adult relationships and develop a love of reading through the read aloud experience.
  • Our programs are provided year round in 16 sites throughout San Diego County with the help of over 200 volunteers.
  • Since our inception in 2009, over 49,500 children, youth and family members have shared a storybook together through our programs.
