Mission Statement

The Big Rothesay Read will encourage literacy in our community and build relationships between adults and high school students through a shared reading experience.

We are reading. Together.

Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada is a small community of 12,000 and we are reading. We are turning pages to collapse the distance between generations and amplify the value of reading and literacy.

We are engaged. As Volunteers.

Enthusiasm for this literacy event has continued to grow as evidenced by an ongoing commitment from our local independent book store, library, Rothesay High School students and educators, the Town of Rothesay, small and large businesses, committee volunteers and the many citizens poised to participate. We have created a buzz and it is extraordinary.
