Summer Reading Parties

       

Join us for Summer Reading Parties!

 In an effort to curb summer reading loss, United Way, in partnership with our local school systems and community organizations will be hosting We Read to Succeed Summer Reading Parties throughout June and July 2017. These fun-filled gatherings will be held at ten local elementary schools and the Simms Center. Students will play games, participate in story time, enjoy literacy-themed activities, and choose free books to read at home during their summer vacation. This event is great for all ages, especially pre-k through elementary school aged children. Look below for more information and to see which community organizations will be at each party.
