About SummerREADS

There is a significant body of evidence that reading on grade level is an important indicator for future academic and life success. Unfortunately, many young people struggle with this important skill development. After-school and summer programs can play a critical role in providing literacy rich environments and engaging families in literacy activities.

Now entering its sixth year, SummerREADS is a free literacy initiative that provides weekly drop-in programming for Baltimore City students. The program is geared toward students who are entering grades K-3 in the fall, though students entering grades K-5 may register. Each host school and library offers a safe and welcoming space where students can participate in literacy workshops with teaching artists and enrichment activities with special guests. Students also earn incentives for reading, receive two free and well-balanced meals per day, take books home, and access other library resources.

In partnership with The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, the Baltimore Elementary and Middle School Library Project, and Baltimore City Public Schools, Young Audiences will operate eleven SummerREADS program sites in Baltimore City during a five-week period this summer.
