The Irving Public Library is excited to present: A Universe of Stories! as our SRC 2019 theme. The goals of this community reading program are to promote a love of reading through engaging weekly events and to encourage reading through incentives and book giveaways. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Irving Public Library and the City of Irving. Readers of all ages are encouraged to participate at any Irving Public Library location from June 1 to July 31.

Pick up a paper reading log when you stop by your local Irving Public Library, or go virtual with an online reading log by visiting ReadSquared

Children can read, or be read to, for 20 minutes a day for five days at a time. Color in the reading log’s musical note for each day completed, then take the log to any Irving library starting after June 5. Children’s prizes include coupons, activity sheets, candy, two free books and a reading medal for completing the challenge. [Visit the Children's SRC page for rules].
