Summer Reading Program

Reading this Summer

Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge

Kids who read over the summer months maintain their skills and are better prepared to start school in the fall. The Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge at Dallas Public Library makes it easy and fun!

Summer vacation may be on the horizon, but that doesn’t mean kids should bid adieu to read. Why? Regular reading keeps academic skills sharp, inspires curiosity, enhances comprehension and vocabulary, and best of all puts in place the habit for young people to become lifelong readers and learners.

In an effort to encourage the whole family to read, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings is kicking off the Mayor’s Summer Reading Club, an eight-week program powered by community participation, weekly incentive prizes and all-around fun.  All 29 Dallas Public Library locations are participating, as well as the Dallas Public Library’s Bookmobile. Contact your local library for celebration dates/times.

Inspire a love of reading!
