Sign-up for the SRP!
Sign-up now for Great River Regional Library's annual Summer Reading Program (SRP) for children and teens ages 0-18. The program will continue through Saturday, Aug. 9 at all 32 GRRL locations.
Two programs are offered: “Experiment with Reading” for children from birth through sixth grade, and “Read, Think, React” for children and teens entering grades six through twelve. Children entering sixth grade may register for either program. “Experiment with Reading” includes a baby/toddler program for ages 0 to 5 to enjoy with their parents/caregivers, and a program for children from age 3 through grade 6. Children ages 3 to 5 may do either one. Kids who take part in the SRP will receive reading records which can be turned in at the end of the program for prize drawings!
Check out the library events calendar to find out about additional special summer programs at your local library.
The goal of the SRP is to encourage children and teens to continue reading during the summer months. Studies show that students who enroll in library summer reading programs and continue to read during the summer maintain or improve their reading skills more than those who do not.
Children who are visiting or vacationing in the area are welcome to take part in the SRP. All books and reading materials count for the program, including materials that do not belong to the library.
