Reading Is Fundamental of Northern Virginia, Inc. (RIF of NOVA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to motivate children to read by providing them with high-quality, free books of their choosing and to work alongside them, their parents and their community to make reading a fun and meaningful part of their lives.
For more than 40 years RIF of NOVA has provided books to underserved children in Northern Virginia.
RIF of NOVA volunteers work together to distribute free books to over 23,000 children who attend schools, day care centers, and Head Start programs in the City of Alexandria and in Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties. Young children are also given books as they wait to get their check-ups at a Fairfax County health center.
