Jumpstart 2013: Dig Into reading
Shine the light on summer reading with this year's Jump Start workshops! Jasmine Rockwell and Karen Duenwald (SD State Library), Becky Pittenger (Yankton Community Library), and Ali Bruinsma (Brookings Public Library) will once again be traveling the state bringing you ideas to "jump start" your summer reading program! Featured in five locations: Rapid City, Chamberlain, Aberdeen, Brookings, and Yankton.
School librarians play a vital role not only in the schools in which they work, but also in the greater community. Each summer, students face a loss of reading comprehension if they are not involved in challenging educational opportunities. A strong school and public library partnership leads to a strong educational community. For the benefit of your students and your community, you are strongly encouraged to partner with your local public library's summer reading program by participating in this year's Jump Start workshops.
—Dr. Melody Schopp, Secretary of Education
If you are a school librarian and wish to attend the Jump Start workshop, we ask that you partner with your local public library's summer reading program. Please contact your local public library to obtain the CSLP School Partnership form. If there is no public library in your community, please contact Jasmine Rockwell for more information.
