(Nominations have closed for the 2023-24 school year. But we’ll honor more great students and their achievements next year!)

What’s it take to be a Reading Champion? Teachers know, and so do librarians.

They see it every day when students show skill development, enthusiasm and success.

Elkhart Public Library helps get families on track with fun literacy programs and our proven Growing Readers tutoring. We keep them interested in books when school’s out with the Summer Reading Challenge.

And now, with our Friends of Elkhart Public Library, we want to celebrate the great strides made this year by Reading Champions. Along with the recognition, we’re going to select a teacher each week through the end of the 2023-24 school year to receive up to $250 in books for their classroom.

For the students picked as Reading Champions, they will get special visits from the Book Bus to pick out new books to keep at home. They also will be featured on EPL’s social feeds and future editions of Explore and Explora magazines.

Make today the day you nominate a student who deserves recognition for their achievements this year!
