OKC Metro Literacy Coalition has hosted more than 1,400 area elementary children over the years for Drop Everything and Read Day, a day when students get to go to the State Capitol for a field trip and legislators read to them in small groups. Students also receive a book to take home from Feed the Children.

D.E.A.R. Day at the Capitol 2019 will be April 10, 2019. State legislators will read aloud at 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. on the 2nd Floor Rotunda.

All legislator reading spots are full. For more information, email at info@okcliteracycoalition.org or call 405-830-2790.
