SAPL Summer Reading Program

GREEN. Forest green. Sea green. Lime green. Pea green. This summer the San Antonio Public Library is all about GREEN.

The 2016 Mayor’s Summer Reading Club kicks off on June 1 with the option of registering online ( or at your neighborhood branch. Members of the Reading Club receive a reading log (featuring a friendly green frog) to track the titles of the books they read. Students who read eight books (or who listen to 16) receive a summer reading certificate signed by Mayor Taylor and can select a free paperback book to keep. Completed reading logs can be submitted through the end of August.

Encouraging children to read over the summer months is one of the best ways you can support the reading skills they developed during the school year. So, make reading a family priority and don’t forget to GO to the San Antonio Public Library this summer!

Poetry in April

April is poetry month. Classes in third and fourth grade worked on poetry centers. Students practiced using poetic techniques: imagery, rhythm, and action verbs. They created haikus, acrostic, and free verse poems.
