Thanks to everyone who attended Read-In 2022 in person and virtually. It was fantastic to be back together again to celebrate reading and declare that, “Kids who read succeed!” We had close to 500 students, teachers, and staff join us for the parade to the South Carolina State House, and several thousand watched online.

York County is taking literacy on the road with its new outreach van. On February 24, Director of Finance and Grants Wendy Coplen joined YCL Director Jason Hyatt and his team to celebrate the Sprinter van and cut the ribbon, signifying its launch into the community. The van contains a wheelchair lift and roll-on book carts for serving senior patrons.
