!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 students who have completed Kindergarten through 5th grade
Due to CoVID-19 and social distancing guidelines,
the 2020 Reading Bridge summer tutoring
program will not be offered this year.
We are committed to offering our program in 2021. Have a safe summer and keep reading!
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.
