Edwards Elementary Reading Room

The Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation continued its support of youth literacy with the unveiling of the 7th Russell’s Reading Room today at Edwards Elementary School in Oklahoma City on January 5, 2016.

Russell has always valued the importance of education and creating a safe learning environment. “I am excited to not only open another Russell’s Reading Room but to start having book fairs at the schools,” said Westbrook. “I think it is important that these kids are not only encouraged to read at school but at home as well and now they can all go home with a new book.” The Russell’s Reading Room initiative remains committed to providing a nurturing space for children to develop their reading skills at school and at home.
