Summer Reading 2022.

"Read Beyond the Beaten Path" 

Do you know about the "Summer Slide"?  It's when kids lose profiency in reading over the summer break, which tends to have a snowball effect when the school year begins in the Fall. A recent study shows that students in 3rd-5th grade lose an average of 20% of their school-year gains in reading  IF they don't keep engaged during the summer months.  Here at CRPL, we've found a way to make reading fun and rewarding and this year our Friends of the Library is sponsoring our program!

Here's the info:

Who's eligible: Kids entering K-6th grade in the Fall of 2022

Sign up: May 23-June 10

Read from: May 23-June 30

All items need to be checked out electronically through Bridges/Libby from Coon Rapids Public Library or directly from the library.

It's in a BINGO format this year--3 ways to win:

Single BINGO

Double BINGO (ANY 2 BINGO's on the sheet)

Blackout BINGO

Each reader chooses how much they want to read!  Once your BINGO sheet is completed for the session, bring it in to get your prizes ordered!  Prizes that need to be ordered will be ordered the first week of July.
