There’s still time to sign up for the Summer Reading Program
Launched on June 1 by Mayor Julian Castro, the San Antonio Public Library’s annual Mayor’s Summer Reading Club for children and the 2014 Summer Reading Program for teens and adults are in full swing, but there’s still time to join!
The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club and the Summer Reading Program encourage children and teens to read during the summer to maintain current reading levels. Children, especially, lose reading skills if they don’t keep up with reading over the summer.
This year’s theme, Fizz, Boom, Read! , encourages summer readers with a slew of science-based events and programming at local Library locations.
Children can sign up for the Mayor’s Summer Reading at any San Antonio Public Library location or join online at mysapl.org/srp beginning June 1. Participants will keep track of the books they read –or listen to- and receive a Reading Club certificate signed by Mayor Castro and a free paperback book to keep. Readers need to complete 8 books, and listeners complete 15.
The San Antonio Public Library will celebrate all of the summer’s super readers with SummerFest celebrations at each location, between July 26 and August 2.
For more information on the Summer Reading Club and the Summer Reading Program, visit mysapl.org/srp or call your neighborhood branch location.
