Summer Reading Challenge
Ramp up your student's motivation for reading by participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. Represent your school and help them reach the most minutes read this summer!
People who read are more successful in school and careers throughout their lives. Reading improves memory and concentration, builds imagination, increases empathy -- and is a great source of entertainment, too! Learn more.
Summer Reading Matters!
Students who don't read during the summer fall behind those who do. It adds up to a big achievement gap. Learn about this "Summer Slide" in the video.
Tips to Encourage Reading
Irving Public Library Events
Check out the public library's summer events and newsletter. The teen summer theme is "Unmask", and the kids theme is "Every Hero Has a Story". Children who participate in public library summer reading programs not only avoid the “summer slide” in learning, but also score higher on reading achievement tests than those who do not participate. So get started today!
