Kiwanis Community Reading Oasis

The Kiwanis Reading Oasis

Children and their families deserve a safe and comfortable place to read books. With a Kiwanis Reading Oasis, that's exactly what they get—right inside the elementary or preschool. A Reading Oasis helps principals and teachers connect students with books they can select on their own and take home to add to their home libraries.


A Reading Oasis includes books for students from pre-kindergarten to 6th grade, as well as bookshelves, a reading-themed rug and additional products to support reading.
