Day staff and families are invited to attend as well as 3-5th grade students. Please join us as we cheer on our courageous Global Readers! 4th grade teams will meet one last time this Wednesday, during lunch recess in the library.  Go Global Readers!  

    What is it?

    The Global Reading Challenge is a reading incentive program for 4th and 5th graders enrolled in Seattle Public Schools. Students form teams and read 10 books, then take part in a trivia competition to determine the winner for the city of Seattle.

    Global Reading Challenge Goals 

    • To ensure the participation of children with higher and lower reading scores throughout the city.
    • To foster teamwork and cooperative thinking.
    • To build strong relationships between The Seattle Public Library and Seattle Public Schools.
    • To share quality children’s literature with the participants that represents a diversity of experiences at a variety of reading levels.
