The 2016 Mayor’s Summer Reading Club kicks off on June 1 with the option of registering online (www.mysapl.org/srp) 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.
