Summer Reading Program 2022
Bingo sheets and verification in the Public Library Reading Program (i.e. reading log with titles, or goal two certificates) are due to your librarian by August 26th.
Many students and families regard summer break as just that—a break from school and classroom studies. Unfortunately, it often means a break from reading, which can seriously hamper achievement in the classroom. There’s a solid link between the amount of independent reading children do and their success in school. Research shows that kids who never crack open a book during the summer often fall behind in reading—the notorious “summer slide”—while kids who read, maintain or improve their reading and learning skills.
I invite you to support your child in the Edmond Summer Reading Challenge!
There are two levels of participation: 1) Snorkeler completes a Public Library Reading program OR completes at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet and 2) Diver participates in a Public Library Reading program AND at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet.
- If you go to https://www.metrolibrary.org/summerschool then you will get lots of information on the Public Library’s summer reading program. It is designed for schools but works for families as well.
Snorkeler: Invitation to Summer Reading Celebration and Papa Murphy’s gift certificate.
Diver: Invitation to Summer Reading Celebration, Papa Murphy’s gift certificate and a special “Oceans of Possibilities” prize.
Parents must initial and date all completed activities (write over print in box). Bingo sheets and verification in the Public Library Reading Program (i.e. reading log with titles, or goal two certificates) are due to Mrs. Cohlmia by Friday, August 26th.

WHAT IS THE SUMMER READING PROGRAM?
Every summer for more than eighty years, the Metropolitan Library System has offered a Summer Reading program to keep kids and their families reading all summer long. We believe reading is a fundamental skill and a gateway to success in life. Summer Reading is a community tradition that promotes reading for fun and lifelong enrichment. We create a motivational framework for learning for all ages during the summer.
