Congratulations summer readers!
Summer Reading 2018 is officially over, and we had a record year. Over 110,000 babies, kids and teens signed up to play! 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 free youth volunteer program in the county, and the positions are located within volunteers' communities.
Check back next spring for information on Summer Reading and volunteering in 2019.
Summer Reading is supported by gifts to The Library Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to enhancing our library's leadership, innovation and reach through private support.
