New Yorkers Read Campaign

Be a Reading Ambassador for the New Yorkers Read Campaign!

This campaign is presented by Macy's and the NYC Department of Education's Office of Library Services. You will learn more about it from your teachers later. If you become an ambassador, you will have the opportunity to win prizes and be recognized in the Spring awards ceremony. The criteria for becoming an ambassador are as follows:

1. Read at least 15 books in 5 different categories. (The categories are based on the Dewey Decimal System in the library). Record your books in the Reading Ambassador's Passport to Knowledge.
2. Write a short review for a nonfiction book and a fiction book.
3. Return 5 "I read because..." postcards from family, friends or community members listing what they like to read and why they like it.

The passports and the postcards will be provided for you. Join the campaign, be an ambassador and READ, READ, READ !!!
