What Makes the 2023 Summer Reading Challenge Special?

This year we are pleased to be partnering with Tree House Books, a literacy organization in Philadelphia. The mission of Tree House Books is to grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Philadelphia. Through multi-programs such as a traveling bookmobile, a neighborhood book delivery program, and on-site literacy services this organization gets books into the hands of children who need them the most.

Our summer reading challenge included a prompt to read a book about poverty and its impact. During the challenge, we hope to inspire a feeling of gratitude and giving. Since the prompt is also part of our year-long Reading Challenge, we will be hosting multiple in-person and virtual events and giving opportunities to raise funds and collect books for this incredible organization all summer long.
