A summer project kids did not mind turning in. LISD students and faculty participating in the summer reading challenge. Each participant completed a reading journal.

Pre-K through second graders were required to read eight books while third through twelfth and adults were required to read five. Those who did it were entered into a prize drawing.

LISD Superintendent Karen Garza said she is very pleased with the number of students, parents, and faculty who utilized the summer reading program.

"The research is very clear that even reading five to eight books of students choice is almost the equivalents of going to a summer school program," Garza said. "It is that important to ensure students are literate and very strong readers."

Over 50,000 books were logged for the reading challenge and over 5,800 visits were made the library.
