Dodgers Storytime at Angelo Iacoboni Library in Lakewood with Al Ferrara (1963-1968 Dodgers outfielder).

Los Angeles Dodgers Alumni will visit 10 LA County Library locations this summer for storytime in a partnership to encourage youth to read and attend library programming to help build a lifelong love of reading. Parents and children are encouraged to track the time they spend reading every day online with a chance to win cool incentives such as attending Dodgers’ batting practice, tickets to the game, and even getting recognized on the field before the game!

In 2017, to help address the literacy crisis in Los Angeles and get children excited about reading, the Los Angeles Dodgers partnered with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation to launch LA Reads, a literacy campaign that includes a literacy challenge, “Dodgers Reading Champions.”

In its first year Dodgers Reading Champions reached 2,400 students, representing 585 schools, who read more than 600,000 minutes. In 2018, the Dodgers and Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation challenge Los Angeles County students to read 1,000,000 minutes. Dodgers Reading Champions is open to 1st through 8th grade students in LA County through August 31. For more information, visit dodgers.com/lareads.
