Just Read! Summer Reading @ SLPL

Do you want to give your child a summer filled with adventures, exploration and discoveries? Then sign them up for the Summer Reading Program at St. Louis Public Library.

Join St. Louis Public Library’s Summer Reading Program between May 22 and July 29, at your local SLPL location or online.

SLPL’s Summer Reading Program can help children discover new interests, try out new skills and open their eyes to a world of possibilities. Plus, they win prizes and become better readers!

Benefits of joining SLPL’s Summer Reading Program are:

• Children who read for pleasure are stronger readers and better students.
• Children who read at least five (5) books in the summer are more likely to start school ready to learn in the fall.
• Children who do not read over the summer actually lose the reading gains they made the previous year.

Make reading and the Library part of your child’s summer. Once a child is signed up, keep track of their reading and then claim prizes at any St. Louis Public Library between May 30 and July 29.

To complete SLPL’s Summer Reading Program, kids and teens must complete 5 chapter books or 15 picture books. For younger participants, books read aloud count too. Teachers can also register a class, club or daycare group.

SLPL's Summer Reading Program is organized by the St. Louis Public Library and is sponsored by the St. Louis Public Library Foundation, St. Louis Cardinals and an LSTA Grant funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the State Library.
