State Sen. George Maziarz has announced he is once again encouraging students to participate in the New York State Senate Summer Reading Program.
"Every year I sponsor this program, and every year I'm amazed to see how many young people are passionate about reading," Maziarz said. "It's not only fun, but it's a great way to hone reading skills between the school years."
Through the program, interested students can use an online journal to keep track of their reading progress throughout the summer. Children who read at least three books and submit a completed journal will receive a summer reading certificate.
Participants must register via Maziarz' website at maziarz.nysenate.gov.
