In 1965 Bank Street's Communications Laboratory began production on three pilot films designed to stimulate a child's desire to learn to read which featured well known entertainers reading hand selected children's books. After a successful pilot program twenty-five Reading Incentive Films were produced between 1966 and 1968. The project was generously funded by the Hattie M. Strong Foundation and the Doris Duke Foundation and distributed in conjunction with McGraw-Hill. A selection of Reading Incentive Films are available below, more will be added as they are transferred from their original format. For any questions, please contact College Archivist Lindsey Wyckoff at lwyckoff@bankstreet.edu.
