Book Drives Focus on Summer Reading Material

Books expand a student’s vocabulary, improve comprehension skills and strengthen imaginations. But many SBISD students face a summer break with limited or no access to age-appropriate books, and they need you to help. Book drives for summer reading are underway for at least two SBISD schools. The Memorial-Spring Branch Rotary Club is collecting books for Bear Boulevard, one of the district’s PreK centers. And over at Treasure Forest Elementary, the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation is raising money to buy summer reading material for the nearly 600 students there.

Please follow the links below for more information on how to help.
Students can also take advantage of SBISD’s partnership with the public library system through the Overdrive app. Students have access to eBooks through the app 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
