Regency Mall partners with local schools for community reading initiative

  • 0

RACINE — The Regency Mall has announced the start of Racine READS, a program designed to publicly promote reading through special events held at the Regency Mall that inspire students, make reading fun and give back to local school libraries.

Racine READS features two events partnered with elementary schools. The first is a READS Spirit Night that encourages reading and supports local libraries. The event features interactive games for students who can use their reading skills to win prizes. For every student that attends, the program donates $1 for the school’s library.

The second event is a READS Recognition Night that celebrates the reading achievements of students at the end of the school year. The event features a presentation of certificates by local leaders and a wall of recognition displaying the names of student readers.

“This is a great annual event that brings people together in the mall in support of local reading success. Our goal is to use the mall common area for events that inspire shoppers, families and the community and we are excited to work with local elementary schools to host events that motivate students to read,” said Coles Doyle, marketing director for Hull Property Group. “The READS events are special family outings that publicly encourage and recognize students. They are uplifting, fun and aim to inspire and motivate local students in a unique way outside of the classroom and the home.”

Racine READS is supported by the Regency Mall at no cost to participating schools. Elementary schools looking to join Racine READS can visit to sign up.
