Don’t Stop the Reading!

With the start of summer comes the fun of summer reading programs.  Avoid the summer slide by encouraging your child to read. . One of the most exciting summer reading opportunities is the Books by Snail Program which is available for all Harrisburg students K-12 (incoming kindergarten through graduating seniors) and runs from May 28 until August 4, 2019.  This free program, available from a state library grant, will provide your child with books through the mail using their DBRL library card.

You can sign up using the paper form that may have come home with your child, or you can use the links below to sign up online.  If your child does not already have a DBRL library card, you’ll find those applications linked below.

If you have questions about any of the summer reading opportunities, please contact Jennie Simpson at
