Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read provides free, age-appropriate books for kids ages 0-5 during their regular well-child exams at all SCVMC pediatric primary care centers. A national program, Reach Out and Read was brought to SCVMC in partnership with the VMC Foundation. Today, it’s one of the largest programs of its kind in the nation, distributing over 30,000 books each year. Reach Out and Read is administered by the VMC Foundation with funding support from the County of Santa Clara Department of Behavioral Health Services.
