 Winter is on the way but we wanted to take some time out to celebrate our Summer Reading success.

Studies show that reading over summer can help students prevent the 'summer slide' and keep literacy levels up. Our students responded to the reading challenge with gusto and adults set a great example by signing up in record numbers as well.

Compared to 2012, the 2013 Summer Reading Club in Gilroy showed

  • 90% increase in children registrations
  • 1006% increase in teen registrations
  • 821% increase in adult registrations

A total of 1669 Gilroyans took part in 2013, we want to make Summer Reading 2014 bigger and better! Let us know your thoughts on what would get YOU reading.
