Why should I participate?
SRP is for all of Cobb County. Fun. Social. Entertaining. With positive outcomes for everyone!
The Early Literacy Program is about young children building reading and language skills. Reading to young children, even infants, increases word recognition and vocabulary.
The Children’s Program engages kids in language skills development for success. Students are at risk of losing 2-3 months of reading and math over the summer. The Summer Reading Program is a fun way to keep students learning!
The Teen Program motivates teens to read and talk about literature. Teens who participate in Summer Reading tend to perform better academically and achieve greater academic gains than those who don’t.
The Adult Program is about experiencing the joy of reading. Reading relieves stress, strengthens the brain, and builds empathy.
