Sno-Isle Libraries program for third graders fosters a lifelong love of reading

Thank you to My Edmonds News for featuring Sno-Isle Libraries' Third Graders Read Together program in their June 7, 2023 issue!

"Third grade represents an important point in a child’s education. At this age, students shift from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” Interventions for struggling readers after third grade are seldom as effective as those in the early years. Since 2013, Sno-Isle Libraries has partnered with schools to support this important milestone by fostering a love of reading during this critical age."
