Mayor's Summer Reading Club

CSLP Early Literacy Slogan_Banner

Saturday, May 30 - Saturday, August 1

The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club (MSRC) is a self-paced reading program that encourages reading throughout the summer. Research shows that two months of reading and math skills are lost over a single summer, but reading just six books during the summer may keep a student from falling behind in the next school year. MSRC is a FREE program for all ages to participate in. Just keep track of how much you’ve read using our online tracker, and then stop by the library to pick up your prizes! Plus, we have a ton of FREE activities for families to do all summer long  – check out the schedule below! Join us on Saturday, August 8, for an end of SRC bash from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Mayor Trevino will recognize children who read more than 100 hours at the event.

Reading is fun, but sometimes kids just need a little incentive – that’s where we come in. Check out these prizes you can earn by reading this summer.
