Thank you so much to the authors, children, parents, librarians, and teachers who came out to the Summer Reading Splash on Saturday. We had a wonderful time and hope that you did as well. Check out some photos from the big day here, and see you next year for more 5 Book Dive fun!
Explore our author line-up here and stay tuned for more exciting updates about the inaugural Summer Reading Splash, a day full of interactive programming, author signings and more! This event is geared towards readers grades 3-6, but all are welcome.
We are thrilled to announce that we have received a $7,500 grant from the Austin Ed Fund to support Austin ISD summer readers. The funds will be used to provide free books to a limited number of students from Title 1 schools who attend the Splash on May 19. Thank you, Austin Ed Fund, for helping to prevent the summer slide!
You, too, can support literacy and summer reading in Austin by donating to our EdBacker campaign here. We appreciate your support!
