Reading in the summertime and all the time
Remember to tell people in your community about the 20 minutes, 24/7 pledge on the Read! SD website. Reading every day for just 20 minutes helps any child keep growing in their reading skills and builds life-long readers. The reading pledge is a fun way for kids to help themselves keep track of that commitment to reading. As librarians you are uniquely poised to help a kid grab a book and grown a mind!
We want your summer reading program pictures! Email Jasmine at firstname.lastname@example.org with any and all photos of your fantastic summer programs. You can also let Jasmine know if you have posted pictures on your Facebook page. Please fill out this release [PDF] to grant the State Library permission to use the photos.
The Cornerstone monthly e-newsletter is created by the South Dakota State Library. For more information on how to be a part of this newsletter, please contact us via e-mail with your questions and ideas.
