Bright Futures Summer Reading Opportunities: School Visits
Get elementary-age children excited about signing up for summer reading! You will receive branded educational materials for each student when a library staff member or volunteer visits one or more schools to promote your Summer Reading program. Classroom visits, assemblies and field trips to the public library count, too! There is no limit on partner schools, but the materials are only available for elementary school children grades K-6. Your on-line application will ask you to submit enrollment numbers for each elementary school. Enrollment numbers for the current school year are uploaded to the State Department of Education site each February. You can find these numbers at: http://www.sde.idaho.gov/site/statistics/fall_enrollment.htm. (If applying before the current numbers are available use the previous year's numbers to estimate.)
