• Youth Summer Reading Initiative

  • Mission & Vision

    The Youth Summer Reading Program offers Berks County’s schools, libraries and local organizations the materials needed to start their own, or add to their existing, summer reading program. A summer book choice, discussion topics based on the book of choice, social media engagement plan & volunteers are offered at no charge through the generous donations of community members, businesses, the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance and Women2Women.

    The program aims to encourage more children to read age appropriate literature, enjoy what they are reading and continue to read. Each child will receive his or her own copy of the summer book to start their own library.
