Welcome to the SWPL 2022 Summer Reading Challenge!! 
For children in preschool - 5th grade

In collaboration with the South Windsor Public School System, we encourage children from preschool through grade 5th to continuing reading for 20 minutes each day throughout the summer.
SWPL has created a reading game card to make it simple and fun for your child to participate in the reading program.

Educational Resources for Online Learning

While the library offers a variety of free digital resources throughout the year, we have created a list of additional free educational resources and activities that will keep children, and adults, entertained during this time of social distancing. This list is ongoing and will be added to periodically.

Children's and YA Services: COVID-19 Online Resources
The Children’s and YA Services of the Connecticut State Library has a list of available free, educational resources. A big thank you to Kymberlee Powe , Children and YA Consultant, for putting this together and ensuring that Youth Service Librarians throughout the state have quality resources to offer to our communities!

Storyline Online
Storyline Online is a children's literacy website created by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, which provides free storytelling videos and resources for parents and teachers to foster a love of reading in children.
