Volunteer reading aides in the District of Columbia became aware of certain inadequacies suffered by the children with whom they worked. The children had no books of their own, school libraries were inadequate and sometimes nonexistent, public libraries were not easily accessible to the children, etc., etc. A proposal made by one of the volunteers, Mrs. Robert McNamara, evolved into the program Reading Is Fun-damental which is sponsored by the District of Columbia Citizens for Better Public Education organization. The two main objectives of the program are to provide children with books of their own to do with as they please and to give them a freedom of choice in the selection of those books. This report describes the conception of the program, its problems, its techniques, and its successes. (NH)
