!Welcome to Reading Bridge
.Reading Bridge is a FREE tutoring program which began in Sioux Falls, SD in the summer of 2001.
Our mission is to help bridge the summer gap by providing free tutoring at school and
public libraries for Kindergarten through 5th grade students
With the temporary closure of all library branches,
Reading Bridge is currently not accepting registrations.
Please check back after June 8 for more info.
Tutoring sessions begin the week of July 6 and run through the week of July 27
Choose from one of the following sessions:
Siouxland Libraries Sites
Mondays/Wednesdays: 10-11, 11-12, or 12-1
Mondays/Wednesdays: 3-4 or 4-5
Crooks Branch 3-4
Tutoring sessions are also available for any elementary students (public, private, or home-schooled) in the
Harrisburg and Garretson school districts.
We hope the time spent with the dozens of amazing tutors
will help students dive into the school year ready to go!
Thank you to our partners:
Siouxland Libraries and the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation.
With the help of generous sponsors, Reading Bridge offers tutoring for free at several different locations around the Sioux Falls area. Eight sessions are offered for free during the month of July. Twice a week for one hour, students meet with a qualified, trained tutor.
It is a great opportunity to give your student extra support
and motivation during the long summer months!
Each tutoring session consists of reading to students, reading with students, writing, and making words (spelling). Students are encouraged to bring a library card to check out books each week. This connection to our local libraries has been a powerful motivator for students.
