San Bernardino County Library hosts Cover to Cover Club

The San Bernardino County Library is partnering with In-N-Out Burger again this year to promote reading among children this spring. The Cover to Cover program kicks off on Saturday, March 3 and will run through Saturday, April 14. This program will encourage students to read in all communities across the county.

To participate in this program, visit any of the 32 San Bernardino County Branch Libraries to sign up. Participants must be between the ages of 4 and 12, and a parent or guardian will need to sign to acknowledge reading accomplishments. For every five books read, an achievement award and voucher for a free hamburger or cheeseburger will be issued. Each child may earn a total of three awards and vouchers for the duration of the program.

In support of the Countywide Vision’s Vision2Read literacy campaign, this program will help to improve literacy among children ages 4 to 12, with the help of incentives, by inspiring an excitement to read, providing achievement goals,  and encouraging a reading routine.

The San Bernardino County Library system is a dynamic network of 32 branch libraries that serve a diverse population over a vast geographic area. The County Library system strives to provide equal access to information, technology, programs, and services for all people who call San Bernardino County home.

The library plays a key role in the achievement of the Countywide Vision, by contributing to educational, cultural, and historical development of our County community.

For more information on the San Bernardino County Library system, please visit sbclib.org or call (909) 387-2220.

Show a Vision2Read by participating in Read Across America

Schools and libraries throughout San Bernardino County are holding Read Across America celebrations from March 1 to March 11.

Reading at grade level by third grade is one of the greatest predictors of children’s success in school, their likelihood of going to college, and their future earning potential. In San Bernardino County, we have a need to improve reading proficiency in our students. Sixty-two percent of San Bernardino County third graders do not meet State English language arts/literacy standards, scoring lower than their peers in neighboring Riverside, Los Angeles, and Orange counties in the 2017 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress test. Vision2Read is a campaign designed to help improve literacy throughout San Bernardino County by connecting people to literacy programs.

If you decide to participate at a Read Across America event, tell us what book you plan to read in the comments section below.

Also, don’t forget to use the hashtags #Vision2Read and #ReadAcrossAmerica if you post on social media.

Finally, if you are looking for your local library branch to find Read Across America events in San Bernardino County visit www.sbclib.org or  www.Vision2Read.com on the Resources page.
