Summer Reading Program For Pre-Readers

Babies and preschoolers may take part in SDL's Summer Reading Program by having a parent, caregiver, older sibling or grandparent read books from Sanilac District Library aloud to them.  

Reading aloud to children introduces critical early literacy skills and encourages  a love of  reading and books. Reading together is the single most effective way to help children become proficient readers.

Be a superhero and inspire a love of reading, share good books and help your child  become a super reader.  


Invitation To Young Artists 

Please share one picture or sculpture to exhibit at Sanilac District Library during the month of July. Paintings and drawings must be ready to hang. All artwork must be clearly marked with the child's name and age or grade. 


Summer Reading Party

Celebrate the end of SDL's Summer Reading Program at our PARTY. The whole family will enjoy the special activities, fun and refreshments.

Prizes will be awarded to those who registered and completed SDL’s Summer Reading Program by reading 5 or more of our library books.

  • Encourage parents to develop early literacy skills with their children from birth and throughout their school years.
  • Create positive attitudes about reading & books.
  • Motivate everyone at every age to read.
  • Encourage regular use of Sanilac District Library.
  • Promote Sanilac District Library’s services.
  • Attract new library users to Sanilac District Library.
