Get Ready to Build a Better World!

June 14, 2017 - 11:09am -- jfuentes

If it's June, it must be time to sign up for this year's Summer Reading Program, which has the theme "Build a Better World." Join us this summer for great books, special activities and free performances by entertainers. Children can earn prizes for reading just 20 minutes every day! Who thought that beating the "summer slide" could be such fun?

Visit our special page that provides all the information and links that you need to organize your child's summer learning. Learn about the city's Passport to Summer Learning and access to Providence Schools' recommended reading lists for all grades. Sign up with Providence READsquared and kids can track their daily reading,earn points and collect badges for all their summer learning activities.

There will be special summer kickoff parties at Knight Memorial (June 20 at 10:00AM), Mount Pleasant (June 27 at 3:00PM)and Washington Park (June 27 at 3:15PM).

Providence Community Library's Mobile Library will visit 10 Providence Elementary Schools and selected recreation centers again this summer and we will post the daily schedule shortly. We can't wait!  Hope you're as excited as we are about summer learning!
