Read Me A Story Program 


When a child is exposed to reading at a very young age, it opens up the world to them. They do better in school, bond with family, engage their imagination, and so much more!

Since 1998, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Read Me A Story Program has provided free books at pediatric offices throughout Western Nevada County for children through eight years of age. Read Me A Story encourages families to read together so your child will reach their full potential when entering kindergarten.

Over 65,000 books have been distributed since the program started!

At each well-child visit, your child is given a book. Parents also receive age appropriate information with tips on reading together, book lists, and other types of activities. 

Your Generous Support Can Make a World of Difference
