Read 2 Succeed @ Norco College is a college wide reading program sponsored by the Wilfred J. Airey Library in partnership with various other campus constituency groups and programs. Each fall and spring semester, a book is selected to be the focus of a college wide read including our students, staff, faculty and local community members. Events surrounding each book include: a book discussion, a student panel discussion, and a speaking engagement and book signing by the author of the book. Additionally, refreshments and book-related prize giveaways are offered at each event.
