#RockTownReads Rock Island community partners are banding together to encourage children to read over the summer by launching the RockTown Reads 'Show Us Your Book' social media campaign! Summer is an important time for students to keep reading and improve their language skills so they can avoid the summer slide. The campaign is another step in Rock Island and Milan’s continuing efforts to promote summer reading. Rock Town Reads partner programs include the Rock Island Public Library’s summer reading program, Spring Forward Learning Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center summer enrichment camps and Rock Island Rotary’s little lending libraries. The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center Executive Director Jerry Jones said, "One proven ingredient to be successful in school and to lead a happy, productive life is to be an active reader. Let’s all pick up a book this summer!" WHAT: RockTown Reads “Show us Your Book” campaign will encourage summer reading for all. Participants are eligible for a weekly prizes or grand prize of Happy Joe’s Pizza for a year. The winner will be announced at the Ready to Rock the School Year on July 29. WHY: To develop a love of reading, curb summer learning loss and promote summer reading programs. WHO: Open to all Rock Island and Milan students and their families. WHEN: June 1 - July 29, 2018 WHERE: Anywhere! Summer camps, library, parks, businesses, etc. HOW: Participants post a photo with a book to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, use #RocktownReads and tag two friends.
