Are you ready to accept the Summer Reading Challenge starting Sunday, June 1?
The San José Public Library challenges people of all ages to spend time reading, learning, exploring, and energizing during the summer.
Play games! Earn great prizes! Attend free events! And prevent yourself (or your children) from slipping down the summer slide!
Prevent the Summer Slide
During summer break, students who do not spend time reading and learning can find their school year skills slipping backwards. Teachers and literacy experts agree that reading for 20 minutes per day during the summer helps students retain their skills and return to school ready to learn.
Read as a Family
The Library also challenges you to share the joy of reading as a family. Everyone from the baby to great-grandpa can get involved! Reading for pleasure is one of the building blocks needed for young people to grow into healthy, productive adults.
Win tickets to a San Jose Earthquakes game!
