South Elyria Youth Reading More in Summer

South Side Pride supported a summer reading initiative between Elyria Public Library and Elyria Schools.

This year's summer reading program was completed by 232 kids - which was up from the 50 kids that participated last year, an increase of over 300%. With teens, there was an increase of over 400% from last year, with 52 completing the program. The initiative lets participants log all of their reading through Beanstack, a web-based product that tracks progress on reading lists and links directly with the schools.

South Side Pride is a Community Collaborative that is developing future leaders in South Elyria. Learn more on this Community Collaborative and our others here.
