Claire’s Day is a celebration of life, authors, illustrators and reading excellence. Now a signature line of service for Read for Literacy, 2018 marks the 17th Anniversary of Claire’s Day inspiring children and families to be lifelong readers and our expansion to three locations: Defiance, Toledo, and Maumee.
In honor of Claire Lynsey Rubini, who passed away from an undiagnosed heart condition in 2000 when she was just ten years old, our programs and services embrace her favorite activities including telling stories, dancing and most of all reading.
 
Because of you: • 30,000 children will meet with authors &
illustrators during 43 school visits
• 1,100 children will be honored with a
C.A.R.E Award
• 1,000 books will be distributed to children and
families to build their own at-home libraries.
On behalf of the children and families we serve, thank you for joining us on this magical purple carpet ride!
