2024 Virginia Reads One Book Program Recap
March 2024

Post Monica McDearmon

More than 15,000 Virginia students and their families read the same book on the same schedule during March thanks to nearly $120,000 of financial support from Virginia’s banking industry. The Virginia Bankers Association Education Foundation (VBA), supported by Virginia banks, is a statewide sponsor of this initiative, a program from Richmond-based Read to Them.

With the support of the VBA and banks across Virginia, the schools received a book for every student and complimentary staff copies, both family literacy and financial literacy activities, school assembly suggestions, teacher resources, and both family and community engagement tools. These resources turn a book into a community experience so everyone can enjoy and share the story. This year’s book was Judy Mood Was In A Mood by Megan McDonald.

Be on the lookout for 2025 program details in September!

Thank You to the 2024 Program Sponsors!
