During Summer 2022, to avoid the “summer slide,” SCGLR engaged our four-county region and partnered with 90 summer camp providers and summer learning academies to encourage a love for reading.
In 2022, 7,984 children participated in the Suncoast Summer Reading Challenge
6,733 completed the challenge by reading at least six books
Per child, the average number of books read was 22
How many books did 7,984 kids actually read? Drumroll please…
