The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the IPPL Foundation & Friends, and it is an IPPL cardholder exclusive.

Have fun this summer! Parents: Check out these popular activities:

Reading Buddies
Grades 1-4
Kids will spend 20 minutes 1-on-1 with a Volunteen reading aloud and chatting about favorite books and authors in a low-pressure environment. Once registered for a date, you will be contacted by a staff member to schedule your child's exact start time.

Mission Math
Kids can have fun and keep up on math skills over the summer! Choose the grade that your child will be entering this fall and work through each sheet. For each completed packet turned in beginning June 13, your child can choose a small prize out of the treasure chest. Sheets also can be turned in during the Mission Math drop-in programs on Mondays; these programs are excellent opportunities for your child to chat math with a Volunteen who can go over the answers.
