Reading Club

Reading Club


The Santa Fe Springs City Library is offering its fall 2023 session of Reading Club from September 18 to December 7, 2023. In our program, children are tested, then placed in small groups with children at similar levels to work with volunteer tutors on phonics, sight words and other reading skills.

Parents who wish to register their children may do so from August 1 until all the seats are full for that session.
