SPONSOR A CHILD FOR PRATT'S SUMMER PROGRAMS!
Last year more than 35,000 children and teens participated in Pratt's summer programs, with more than 13,000 children enrolled in the incentive-based Summer Reading Program, reading over 153,000 books!
Children may experience a loss of academic skills in July and August, often referred to as "summer slide." This loss is nearly impossible to make up, compounds over time, and particularly impacts children in underserved communities.
It costs just $60 to sponsor a child for a whole summer's worth of library programs. Please sponsor one or more children and help reduce summer slide!
