Rocklin Library's Summer Reading Program



Rocklin, CA -- "Paws to Read" is this summer's theme for the Rocklin Library's Summer Reading Program (SRP) to run from June 2 through August 2.

Visit the Rocklin Library on or after June 2 and sign up for the SRP.  You'll be given a reading log that guides you to a summer of reading.  After you've completed all or portions of the log, come back to the library to receive tickets which you can enter into a drawing for fabulous gift baskets! Extra tickets can be earned by completing "reading recess" challenges, so keep coming back for more chances to win.

A key component of the SRP is self selection of reading materials, which motivates struggling readers and helps them to become better readers, writers and spellers. 8 out of 10 studies indicate students who read recreationally out-perform those who don't.

Summer is the most difficult time for parents to find things for kids to do.  The SRP allows for summer reading opportunities and activities that are fun, easily available and "free." 

The SRP is sponsored by Rocklin Friends of the Library.
