Summer Reading


Passport to Summer Learning is an initiative of Providence Public Library and Providence Community Libraries in partnership with Providence Public School District and the Office of the Mayor to connect elementary students with learning and enrichment opportunities throughout the summer to mitigate summer learning loss.

PPSD data analysis has shown that this program has had significant positive outcomes for early literacy students (K-2) especially - a strong start in the early years may provide stronger readers by 3rd grade and beyond.


Sign up for Teen Summer Reading at PPL by visiting Teens who register will receive a welcome kit and can start logging their reading and activities between June 27 and August 20, 2022.

  • Teens between the ages of 13 and 19 can participate! There are separate PPL challenges available for children and adults as well.
  • All teens who sign up will receive a Welcome Kit which includes a bag of creative supplies and a free book. Once you register on the Beanstack site we will contact you about your kits.
  • Teens earn badges and a raffle ticket for each half hour of time spent reading (any type of reading!) and for each activity completed.
  • Each raffle ticket can be entered into a grand prize drawing or redeemed for a free book or small voucher to a local business. That's a reward for every 30 minutes of reading!
