About Us

In an effort to increase the number of children entering school prepared to learn, read and succeed, the South Sound Reading Foundation exists to ensure that every child is read with 20 minutes a day starting at birth. Reading just 20 minutes a day promotes healthy brain development, family bonding and success in school.

The South Sound Reading Foundation is a non-profit organization serving Thurston and Mason Counties in Washington State. We educate and remind families about the importance of reading each day and strive to get books into every home so that every child reads or is read with at least 20 minutes a day. Daily family reading helps children develop a larger vocabulary, a longer attention span, and better listening skills—all vital to their success in school and in life. Each year we give away thousands of new and gently used books to area children and provide regular family literacy programming at a variety of locations in the South Sound area.
