Spread the Word Nevada addresses summer learning loss with our weekly Books on Break summer program. We partner with other agencies including Three Square and Boys and Girls Clubs to identify summer sites where children who may be at-risk gather. We then deliver storytime, reading logs, prizes, activity sheets, and books to those sites!

The program includes:

  • Modeled storytime with Spread the Word Nevada staff
  • Distribution of “forever” books
  • Reading logs to encourage independent reading
  • Treasure box prizes for completed reading logs
  • Extension activities provided for a daily “power ½ hour”
