United Way of Tarrant County created “Wild About Reading,” an annual event designed to encourage young children and their families to make reading a fun daily activity to supplement school learning. United Way and its partners on average distribute 3,000 books during the event, have reading time activities with celebrity readers and provide families the opportunity to sign up for library cards.

Our 2018 “Wild About Reading” event, presented by Atmos Energy, was a fun-filled day at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. From free books to celebrity readers, Tarrant County children had a blast celebrating a love of reading. Thank you to all our sponsors, event partners and volunteers for making this day possible.
