USO SAN DIEGO Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program

Bob Hope Legacy is proud to partner with USO to create the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program. In the spirit of Bob Hope and his dedication for bringing military families together, the program is largely driven by virtual, on-demand story time offerings that will help the USO extend its reach and connect with military families around the globe through reading.

The Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program focuses on:

Service members and their children record a story together in preparations for an upcoming deployment

Bringing story time on demand around the globe.

Through the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program service members can walk into participating USO locations, record themselves reading their child’s favorite story and have that recording shipped home.

Helping military kids stay connected through reading.

Recognizing the challenges military children often face when dealing with separation, the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program makes it possible for military kids to add a new book to their own library and share story time with someone they love by recording themselves reading.

The USO sends the recording to the child’s special loved one, helping bring families together no matter the miles that may separate them.

Military children from the San Diego area record stories to family members far and near in USO San Diego's Liberty Station Center reading library.

Supporting local reading programs in many USO locations around the world.

Local reading programs are designed to serve the unique needs of each military community. For some locations, the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program gives military spouses dealing with a loved one’s deployment a chance to spend some time with other families in similar situations. No matter where service may take our nation’s military families, the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program is dedicated to helping bridge that distance.

The USO San Diego Liberty Station Center offers a small library and reading area that allow our military and their families to relax and dig into a good book. Events like "Story time at the Center" also encourage kids to use their creativity to complete a craft that complements a story's theme and provide a place for military families to connect.

USO San Diego's Reading Library is located at the Liberty Station Center: 2790 Truxton Rd. San Diego, CA 92106
