SMART Reading program in Oregon marks 30 years
School is just two weeks away in parts of the region. And that means it won't be long before SMART Reading returns in Oregon.
The program, once called Start Making A Reader Today, pairs adults and students in weekly reading sessions designed to encourage reading and give positive adult interaction to kids. And SMART Reading is 30 years old this year!
