ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) Pick up a book and get to reading, that's what local leaders hope we will do as they launch a new reading campaign called Read 815 in order to help raise the third-grade reading levels

The campaign challenges every member of the community to read one book per week between now and the start of the school year. Community members are asking participants to post a weekly reading selfie on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using one or more of the following hashtags: #read815 #bookaweek #readingselfie.

You can also find Read 815 on Instagram where there will be more contests, prize giveaways and even celebrity appearances.
