rorsdlogoReach Out and Read San Diego Hosts Holiday Book Drive

This holiday season Reach Out and Read San Diego (RORSD) is partnering with Barnes and Noble Oceanside and Rancho Bernardo to host a book drive. Now through the end of the year, families can visit either location to purchase a book to donate to a child in need in San Diego:

Barnes and Noble Oceanside
2615 Vista Way
Oceanside, CA 92054

Barnes and Noble Rancho Bernardo
11744 Carmel Mountain Road
San Diego, CA 92128

RORSD, a program of the local chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP-CA3) and funded in part by First 5 San Diego, uses an evidence-based approach to promote early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud. Last year, RORSD reached 55,000 children at 74 pediatric medical offices in San Diego County.  For more information, visit www.rorsd.org.
