Prevent Summer Slide

March 26, 2015

The benefits of summer reading are clear.
  National research finds that

students who participate in library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate.

 

The iREAD mission is to provide libraries with the tools to bridge this summer gap, while inspiring literacy and life-long learning.  Click here to view our new "Prevent Summer Slide" bookmarks and posters, designed to create support from parents and community leaders.
