Assemblywoman Pheffer Offers Summer Reading Challenge

Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer (D-Queens) is pleased to continue her tradition of offering a Summer Reading Challenge to students during their summer vacation.

"Just because school is out for the summer, does not mean that students have to stop learning or reading," said Pheffer.

To encourage children to continue reading during the summer, Pheffer is offering her annual Summer Reading Challenge.

If interested, you will receive a brochure with a calendar and a box for each day in July and August.

When there are 40 or more days marked off with 15 minutes or more of reading on each day, your child will have earned a New York State Assembly Excellence in Reading Certificate.

Along with the calendar, the brochure contains a list of suggested reading material for each stage of childhood to assist in your choice of books.

"Reading is an important tool for success, and the students who participate in this challenge demonstrate that they are committed to making education a priority," said Pheffer.

The brochures and entry forms are available at the following locations:

Far Rockaway Library—1637 Central Avenue, Far Rockaway, NY 11691

Peninsula Library—92-25 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach, NY 11693

Seaside Library—116-15 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Park, NY 11694

Broad Channel Library—16-26 Cross Bay Boulevard, Broad Channel, NY 11693

Caffrey Conroy Learning Center— 33 Beach 209 Street, Rockaway Point, NY 11697

Brochures are also available at n Pheffer's district offices at 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard, Ozone Park.

The Excellence in Reading Certificate will be forwarded upon achievement of your completed calendar.
