#COHearts2READ: Nov. 11-15, 2019

READ Posters and #COHearts2READ

In honor of National Family Literacy Month in November, the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado State Library are launching the #COHearts2READ social media campaign to highlight Coloradans’ passion for reading. The campaign is focused on encouraging students, teachers, school and library staff and the general public to share why they love to read. The idea is to use the hashtag #COHearts2READ on social media during the week of Nov. 11-15, 2019.

Check out the challenge for each day and participate on any social media site using the hashtag #COHearts2READ​ or follow along on CDE's Facebook and Twitter pages or the Colorado State Library's Facebook and Twitter pages.
