Congratulations summer readers!
Summer Reading 2019 is officially over, and it was a great year for reading. Over 110,000 babies, kids and teens signed up to discover a Universe of Stories. Thanks to our partnerships with seven Multnomah County school districts, over 84,000 kids had their Summer Reading gameboards before school ended.
The Summer Reading program also offers volunteer opportunities for youth in grade 6 and up. Over 850 volunteers dedicated their time to the success of the program! This is the largest youth volunteer program in the county. It's free, offers transportation assistance if needed, and is located right in their communities.
We'll be posting this year's winners soon. Check back next spring for information on Summer Reading and volunteering in 2020.
The Summer Reading program is supported by gifts to The Library Foundation.
