The Red River Reading Council (RRRC) was established in October 1958, by professor Allen Erickson of Moorhead State University. A year later it affiliated with the Minnesota Reading Association. Membership is open to anyone interested in the promotion of reading and research in reading. Most members are in the education professions, particularly public school teachers, college faculty in education, and librarians. The RRRC acts as a clearing house for information on reading to its members and the schools within the Red River region of Minnesota and North Dakota. The RRRC sponsors workshops and meetings dealing with progress, problems, and research issues related to the teaching of reading.
The Red River Council collection contains by-laws, correspondence, minutes, newsletters, and membership lists of the RRRC. All materials are in excellent condition.
