For 30 years, United Through Reading has provided the opportunity for
service members to be video recorded reading a storybook aloud to a child they love. While we encourage military members to video-record stories at more than 200 physical UTR Story Stations around the world, the service member can now download the United Through Reading App, which is both FREE and SECURE, on the Google Play and Apple Stores.
To order your complimentary book use this form. Books are kindly donated by Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

If you are recording at one of our story stations, a book will be provided.
If you are recording using the self-service feature, you will need to provide your own book or use this form to request a book to be sent to you.
