Read Aloud Literacy Program

Bowie Reads Aloud Banner

Get lost in a great book with one of our “celebrity” book readers!

Bowie is teaming up with some local readers to provide a series of Read Aloud videos for our youngest residents. We hope you will enjoy seeing some familiar faces and have fun exploring some new books or getting reacquainted with some old favorites. Check back often as we will be adding more books soon.
