No one wants to experience a "summer slide" in their reading skills.
With Summer Reading Club, you can have fun with us from afar, and encourage kids to learn and grow while on break!
We incorporate daily educational and entertaining activities for kids that keep them engaged with learning, and offer prize opportunities for completion of weekly goals and achievements!
This year we had over 600 signups and participants! And, the Longview Public Library offered it's first ever, virtual summer reading club for 2020!
When we had to switch things up a bit to move towards virtual/digital, it was a heavy blow to us that we couldn’t have everyone in here for programs and events like we normally do during summer.
But, with some trial and success, we’re happy with the results and hope to incorporate what we’ve learned into future events!
Our patron participation is always a huge part of SRC’s success.
So thank you to everyone who signed up, interacted and participated, left comments/likes, shared pictures, registered daycares, and spread the word.
Thank you to our sponsors: past, present, and future. You are also a huge part of Summer Reading Club’s success.
Special shoutout to Buckner Longview, and Under the Pecan Tree Embroidery & Screen Printing!
Thank you to all our performers and program contributors. We’re happy you took the time to help entertain us, even when it couldn’t be in person!
And lastly, a huge round of applause for our library staff.
Everyone really stepped up their game and took the reins to help pivot us into the virtual world, and keep things running smoothly in house! Great job team.
We can’t wait to see everyone next summer! Please visit this site again around May 2021.
