CLA Summer Reading Challenge :: #OneMillionReaders

One Million Readers

Children, teens and adults, are you up for a challenge?

Please join CLA’s One Million Readers summer challenge again this year, and engage even more community members with your summer programs!

In 2015, participation in California’s summer reading and learning programs increased by 8%. CLA is asking public libraries to conduct outreach and create partnerships to increase participation again this year.

Public library summer reading and learning programs:
· foster communities of readers and library users
· help prevent summer learning loss in children and teens,
· are entry points for community members to learn about the library’s resources, and
· help adults model good reading habits for youth.

The more people who take part in summer reading, the greater impact our programs will have.

Will you accept the #OneMillionReaders challenge? Sign up now!
- Over 790,000 Californians signed up for a public library summer reading program during 2015.
- Over 1.4 million Californians attended summer reading events and activities.
- Over 116,000 children and teens read at least five books during the summer reading program.

Children, teens and adults who take part in summer reading talk about the books they read:
76% of children | 68% of teens | 80% of adults

They enjoy the summer reading program.
90% of children | 84% of teens | 86% of adults

And they plan to return to the library after the summer.
86% of children | 83% of teens | 91% of adults

Children who read, succeed! And California’s summer readers and library users return to school ready to learn!
