2017 Summer Reading Awaits
The Gresham-Barlow School District Partners with the
Multnomah County Library and Clackamas County Library
To Support Your Summer Reading Goals

 Click on your school logo.

           

Why do we even have to read during the summer?  

Reason 1: So kids don't lose reading skills they worked so hard to gain during the school year!  

Reason 2: When everyone does something together, it creates community. 

Reason 3: Reading is fun and a life-long skill.
