A good book can take you on quite a journey. For ten years, Marietta Reads has taken children on a reading adventure. Marietta Reads is a citywide initiative to foster reading and literacy in our community. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage Marietta City School students to read more, read better and read widely.
Research suggests that students who read improve vocabulary, develop an excellent background for future learning, improve academic performance, and develop a lifelong habit that will enrich experience. To mark the 10th birthday of Mari-Etta and the Marietta Reads program, we are celebrating the spirit of adventure reading provides at Marietta Square.
All around the square, there will be special stations to stamp your reading passport.
- Local celebrity readers
- The announcement of the One Book Marietta project book
- "A Great Place to Read" reading vignettes created by local designers on Marietta Square. Students can get their reading passport stamped at each location
- A new program in the spirit of "Flat-Stanley." Students can now take "Mari-Etta" around the community and photograph our mascot in cool places to read.
