Summer Reading Registration

Summer Reading Brochure


2017 New Mexico True Summer Reading Challenge

Free reading program dedicated to stopping the "summer slide" by encouraging our New Mexico students to read more books over the summer break. Reading is the foundation for learning, and when our students read well, they are better positioned to succeed academically, in the workplace and in life.
