About CRC

Chesapeake Reading Council (CRC) is the local chapter of the Virginia State Literacy Association. We are a public service organization devoted to promoting literacy throughout our city and to fostering a lifelong pursuit of reading.  CRC promotes all aspects of reading and writing! 

Chesapeake Reading Council has been chartered for over 46 years and is a vital force in reading education throughout the City of Chesapeake.  Working in all Chesapeake public schools and in the community, we support children, parents, teachers, school administrators, and community leaders by providing programs and resources which support literacy and literacy education.
