Summer Reading Challenge

The largest and most ambitious of our reading initiatives, the Summer Reading Challenge, is an annual initiative to engage readers of all ages in reading throughout the summer months impacting 15,000 individuals annually. The program offers activities and incentives that encourage youth to read for fun over break, an in effort to beat the learning loss known as “summer slide”—which can equate to as much as two months of class time, compounding annually.

Your support of this program will help us keep pace with the increasing demand and participation.  Click here to learn more about Virginia Beach Public Library’s Summer Reading program.
