This summer myON is delivering thousands of free books to computer and mobile devices that can be accessed every day, all day, now through August 31, 2018, by students, parents, and others. 
The Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, Georgia Public Library Service, and Georgia Public Broadcasting have come together to provide access to helpful resources including meals, books, educational opportunities, and more all in one place at georgiasummer.org.

Get Georgia Reading is a collaboration of more than 100 public and private partners that are finding new ways of working together across Georgia, across sectors, across agencies and organizations, and across the early years and early grades, using data to inform decision making.

In 2013, more than 100 state and local leaders joined in an eight-month planning process to develop a clearly defined common agenda to create the conditions for every child in Georgia to become a proficient reader by the end of third grade. The common agenda consists of four research-based pillars that work together to provide a platform for success: Language Nutrition, Access, Positive Learning Climate, and Teacher Preparation and Effectiveness. These four pillars provide a new way of looking at early literacy and learning during the first eight years of life, opening the doors to conversations that identify gaps and where to locate resources to fill those gaps. Campaign partners are using the four pillars to challenge conventional approaches, establish new cross-sector collaborations, and support collective action in communities throughout the state.
