Boys and Girls Clubs Summer Reading Partnerships Application

If you have a Boys and Girls Club in your area, you might consider applying for this program.

ICfL will work with 3-4 public libraries to replicate the pilot program that was tested in Ada County in 2012.

Purpose: The purpose of this program is to minimize summer learning loss, especially among disadvantaged or underserved children.

Apply Now for Bright Futures Summer Outreach Programs

The Commission is now accepting applications for Bright Futures Summer Outreach Programs. These opportunities are designed to reach more children with summer reading programs, especially those considered “underserved.” Each program is designed to achieve specific outcomes and participating libraries must report results in the ICfL annual summer reading programs report.

Summer Reading Manuals Headed Your Way!

Summer Reading Program manuals have been shipped out to every publicly-funded public library in Idaho that submitted their 2013 Summer Reading Report. Manuals are addressed to the library in general and not a specific person, so please keep an eye out and give your mail processing person a heads-up.
