The City of St. Cloud has partnered with Osceola Reads, a countywide literacy initiative that gives preschool through 2nd-grade kiddos a head start toward school success, by sponsoring a mobile-reading station. The station includes two iPads for children to access the Footsteps2Brilliance app while visiting the St. Cloud Civic Center Complex. Osceola Reads offers the Footsteps2Brilliance reading app to all Osceola County children at no cost.

There is a designated code attached to each station that children can use to log in, or they can log in with their own Super Secret Code if they have already registered for free at

“Reading is an essential and fundamental lifelong skill for children to learn and thrive throughout school and beyond. The technology stations and the Osceola Reads initiative reflect this community’s ongoing and authentic commitment to the future of our children,” said Mayor Nathan Blackwell.

The Osceola Reads Sponsor a Station program provides community organizations and businesses the opportunity to sponsor a technology station in and around their business or other location of their choosing in Osceola County. The Sponsor a Station program assists Osceola Reads in bringing resources into the community that allows families to utilize the Footsteps2Brilliance reading app.

The Osceola Reads initiative is sponsored by the School District of Osceola County, Education Foundation of Osceola County, Osceola County BOCC, and the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud.
