San Diego Public Library Reads by Design for Summer 2017
As president and CEO of Pinnacle Hotels USA, Inc., founder Bharat Lall directs operations of a portfolio of nine Sunbelt properties. He is also a devoted philanthropist in his own San Diego community and beyond. Thanks to Bharat Lall and other donors, the San Diego Public Library is better able to offer programs and services that enrich the lives of its patrons.
In June 2017, SDPL kicked off the newest incarnation of its beloved summer reading program. As the problem of “summer slide”--the drop in children’s reading skills that can occur over summer break--becomes more widely known, public libraries and their communities are dedicating more resources to making reading and learning a fun part of vacation for the entire family.
This year’s SDPL summer reading theme is “Reading by Design.” Everyone, from babies to adults, is invited to participate, enjoy summer programs at the library, and collect prizes. Program finishers are invited to visit their local branch to receive age-specific prizes that include complimentary passes to the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Air and Space Museum in historic Balboa Park.
