Summer Discovery

Every summer, Anchorage Public Library invites students and families to track their summer learning and reading activities to win prizes! Children and youth that continue to read and learn over the summer will fight the "summer slide" (loss of academic progress during the summer break) and develop a lifelong love of reading and learning! Learn more: why summers and summer learning matters.

 The great thing about summer is you can read whatever you want, but if you would like some suggestions, check out our Summer Reading Suggestions by Grade booklists.

Pick up or print out your Summer Discovery reading log to start working towards your prize! (Available May 18). Already finished? Pick up a Readers to the Rescue log at your library to help donate to a local charity.
