Support Summer Reading and Prevent Summer Slide

Sponsor A Child For Pratt's Summer Programs!

Last year more than 38,500 children and teens participated in Pratt's summer programs, with more than 15,800 children enrolled in the incentive-based Summer Reading Program. Kindergarten through 5th-grade participants logged more than 5.2 million minutes of reading, and our teen participants read over 8,000 books!

Summer Reading helps reduce "summer slide", a loss of academic skills that students may experience in July and August. 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!

For assistance and questions about donations, please contact the Institutional Advancement at (410) 396-5283.
