SMART - Start Making a Reader Today

      Every child should be able to read. With your help, they can. Each year, SMART, Start Making a Reader Today, reaches thousands of Oregon children with vital one-on-one reading support, and books for those who need them most.

      SMART Executive Director, Chris Otis, along with Program Director, Rachel Lawrence, shared how the program works and gave us a demonstration with young readers Conrad Quale and Kylie Morrow-Gilmore.
