The benefits of summer reading are clear. National research finds that students who participate in library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate. The iREAD mission is to provide libraries with the tools to bridge this summer gap, while inspiring literacy and life-long learning.
As a coordinated, self-supporting effort developed by the Illinois Library Association and librarians, every purchase from iREAD helps to promote and assist the great work of libraries.
Thank you for supporting iREAD!
