Charlotte's Web, by E. B. White

  Supporting Community Thro​ugh Reading



Welcome to The Virginia Yerxa Community Read website. The VYCR seeks to promote reading, and support our community, through an annual book-in-common experience.

In honor of our tenth anniversary and to commemorate namesake Virginia’s many years of reading with children, the Virginia Yerxa Community Read is pleased to announce the selection of children’s classic Charlotte’s Web as the 2019 book in common.

We invite our community to read this charming story, recall favorite books from your own childhood, and share them with the children in your life.  

Virginia Read Day was April 27, 2019.
