New York State Reading Association
The New York State Reading Association (NYSRA) is an all-inclusive volunteer organization of members who are passionate about literacy. We share and support efforts to improve literacy education for people of all ages on local, state and global levels. We are teachers, librarians, parents, students, writers, researchers and professors. We welcome anyone to join us either as an at-large member, or better yet, through one of our many local councils!
Thinking ahead? Plan now to join NYSRA and our amazing keynote speaker, Kwame Alexander
in Rochester for our 2023 Annual Conference from Wednesday, Nov. 8 through Friday, Nov. 10. We'll be seeking proposals to present before you know it. Check back here for updates.
Be sure to mark you calendars!!
We can help.
