Off-Site Summer Reading Program
Increase participants' time spent reading over the summer. Distribute library information to at least 1,000 participants and their families; get at least 25% of the participants to visit the library in person once over the summer. Build partnerships with school daycare and summer school program providers.
248 more children than last year participated, a 24% increase. 1,020 letters to parents went home with participants. Daycares responded positively to reading promotion programs at the daycares.
