Registration is now open for Summer Reading Bridge

Reading Bridge boosts literacy skills in children grades 1-3 through mentorship and creative play, while fostering the joy of reading.

Young readers will be paired with a volunteer mentor to meet at the library weekly throughout summer to build reading skills and confidence. Each 45 minute session will include time for the student and mentor to read together, play games and activities designed to build literacy skills, and goal setting for the week to come.

To participate in the program, students must:

  • be in grades 1, 2, or 3
  • read below grade level
  • live in or attend school in Anoka County
  • be able to meet with their volunteer mentor at the library every week on the same day and time. To respect the time our volunteer mentors  are committing to the program, please do not sign up if you know you will miss more than 2 sessions.  Families should wait for a future season when they can commit to weekly attendance if they know they have scheduling conflicts so their student can get the maximum benefit from the program. 

 A parent/caregiver must stay in the library while the student works with their mentor.

Register through our online event calendar here.

Seats are limited and expected to fill quickly.  Students will automatically be signed up for the same day/time for the whole Reading Bridge season when they register. Students may ONLY sign up for one weekly timeslot during a Reading Bridge season. Duplicate registrations will be canceled.
