Youth Summer Reading

Thank you, readers of University City, for a wonderful summer!

While reporting for the 2023 Summer Reading Program has ended, we want to thank all of our participants for an extremely successful year! Our program was bursting at the seems with 294 participants.

The wonderful readers of University City dove through an enormous number of books. Our littlest patrons (ages 0 – 3) read 1,530 books and our student patrons (ages 4 – 17) read a whopping 453,975 minutes!

We would like to extend an extra congratulations to all of our OUTSTANDING READERS who read more than double the necessary hours to complete the program. You should be so proud!

Our teen volunteers were, once again, the *~*SUPERSTARS*~* of the summer! Our 22 volunteers worked hundreds of hours to make sure all our readers had the best possible experience reporting.

If you are interested in receiving an email in the spring about next year’s volunteer opportunities, please provide your email contact information via this online survey:
