SRP (Babies to Grade 5)

Read With Us This Summer!

How it works:

  • Visit the Children's Department to get your summer reading log and starter pack. (You can also download the reading log here.)
  • Keep track of the minutes you spend reading.
  • Along the way, kids 0-3 collect stickers and kids ages 4-11 will get beads.
  • Get a bonus bead or sticker when you submit a completed reading log.
  • Logs may be submitted until Friday, September 1st.
