The Love for Reading Day (February 14), sponsored by the Warner School of Education and themed Share Your Love for Reading With a Child, is a new annual event designed to celebrate a love of reading and to ignite and nurture reading at home and in the community through a new social media campaign. This February 14th, readers near and far are encouraged to document, share, and tag photos of themselves reading aloud to children on social media, using the hasthtag #read4luv.

Research shows that reading aloud daily to children improves their long-term reading success and sets them up for a lifelong love of books and reading.

To help show the value of reading with children this Valentine’s Day, please share pictures of reading with your Valentine on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and tag your photos with the hashtag #read4luv. If you don’t have a young one in the house and want to share your love of reading, please post photos of reading to your favorite critter or teddy bear. Celebrate Valentine’s Day at #read4luv.
