North Highland Elementary Reading Room

Teachers, parents, and students at North Highland Elementary took part in the opening of Russell’s Reading Room, launched by Russell Westbrook’s Why Not? Foundation. Russell’s Reading Room is a literacy initiative created to provide children in the Oklahoma City area with access to books and a safe environment for students to read with friends. North Highland Elementary was filled with 1,200 books for all ages including a Modular Reading Center, a Stereo CD Listening Station, and a Listening Library with Fluency CDs.

“My foundation has grown so much in the last few years and we are working really hard to promote literacy in children and give them access to books,” said Russell Westbrook. “To see so many people come together and support what we are doing is truly amazing. This is a great event and I am so proud to have it grow every year.”
