That’s how many youth have signed up for Summer Reading 2012!
And for every single youth that reaches their reading goal, the wonderfully generous Friends of the Library will donate a book to The Reading Connection, an Arlington non-profit that promotes literacy-rich environments for at-risk children and families.
How does our Summer Reading registration break down? Here was the official count as of Aug. 10:
- Preschool Signups – 1303
- Elementary Signups – 4705
- Middle/High School Signups – 1128
- Reaching Goal -1793
We’re on track to match or beat last year’s record number of 7,371!
