Summer Tutoring Program
Reading Bridge began in the summer of 2001. We currently serve students who have finished grades Kindergarten through 5th. Each student can receive up to eight hours of free tutoring.
Our mission is to provide free tutoring to area students to keep them reading and writing in the summer.
Reading Bridge focuses on reading, writing, and making words. Reading Bridge is located in all Siouxland Libraries locations. Students receive library cards and have time to check out books after each session.
Please check back in April 2020 for sign-up information.

Does your child qualify?
If your child has finished Kindergarten through fifth grade, then he or she qualifies.
Reading Bridge was founded with the purpose of helping those who could not easily afford private tutoring. If your child already receives services elsewhere, we ask that you wait to sign-up until it draws closer to our July start time.
