STUDENTS, PARENTS are you ready to take the challenge? It’s time for the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge! This fun and educational activity is open to students in grades K – 6. This year we are distributing books directly from our schools. Students will pick up their books at their school library. Additional books will be available online via your public library, or any of the sites listed on this website.

We have sheets to track your reading progress that can also bepicked up at the school library, or from any public library. A host of fun events are planned this summer from read-ins to book exchange parties and more.

Students that read five or more books this summer and hand in their tracking sheet will receive a certificate signed by the Governor, and an invitation to a celebratory party. So take the challenge and Read Five!
