Many parents and caregivers are unaware that a consistent reading routine during the summer months helps children maintain reading proficiency. This program offers resources for libraries to communicate this information to parents and caregivers, and inform them about how to participate in the library’s summer reading program.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis and priority will be given to libraries who will track the number of children (birth to 18) who read a minimum of 10 books or 10 hours. See more information about this component.
Funding for this program is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, under a provision of the Library Services and Technology Act
