Educational Outreach

Welcome to the City of Reading Public Works Education and Outreach Page! This page contains links and videos to help our residents, community organizations, and teachers find information and activities to Build a Better Reading Together. Our staff is also available to give presentations to your organization, club, community group, religious organization, or classroom on a variety of topics! To arrange for a visit, please email or call 877-727-3234 and request an education visit. These visits may be done remotely or in person, and are offered at no charge.

We are also happy to work with classrooms and homeschoolers on service learning projects! Please contact our educator at for more information.
