SUPPORT PRATT LIBRARY’S SUMMER READING PROGRAM & HELP REDUCE “SUMMER SLIDE”

Summer Reading: One World, Many Stories

Support Pratt Library's Summer Reading Program: Help reduce summer slide!

Last year more than 38,000 children and teens participated in Pratt's summer programs, with more than 16,000 children enrolled in the incentive-based Summer Reading Program, reading over 220,000 books! We know that children may experience a loss of academic skills in July and August, often referred to as "summer slide." This loss is nearly impossible to make up, compounds over time, and particularly impacts children in underserved communities.

It costs $60 to sponsor a child for a whole summer's worth of library programs. Please sponsor one or more children and help reduce summer slide!
