About the Mayor's Book Club

Join the Mayor of the City of Newport News in promoting early literacy on the Peninsula. Each month volunteers in Newport News will be reading to 93 pre-school classes in Newport News Public Schools’ Early Childhood Centers. Each class will hear the same book and each preschool student will receive a copy of the featured book to take home.

Preschoolers in Newport News are getting new books and more people to read to them through a new program that kicked off October 6, 2011. The Newport News MayorsBook Club is designed to help get children ready to read by kindergarten. The program provides volunteer readers and new books to preschool students. Read more about the program's inception here.
