Cool ReadersThe 2nd Annual Cool Readers Reading Challenge will kick off on may 2nd at the Davenport Public Library Fairmount Street Branch located at 300 N Fairmount St in Davenport, IA.

The program awards 1st grade students from Buchanan, Jackson and Wilson Elementaries with a pizza party, a certificate and their very own Cool Reader Penguin stuffed animal! Each first grader is challenged to read 10 or more books in a month, and each year the program is completed by more and more students.

Specific times for each class will be handed out by the students' teachers.

The annual Scottie Reads Reading Challenge event began in 2019 and is the one of four reading programs that Ascentra supports.  Thank you to our partners at the Davenport Public Library, the Davenport School District, and the Ascentra staff who volunteered their day to make this event possible.

In 2019, 48 first graders were recognized and awarded for their reading efforts!  Each of these little readers read 10 books or more in one month and as a reward, were invited to a pizza party along with their families and received a certificate of achievement and their very own plush Penguin.  They even got their picture taken with Ascentra’s Jumpin’ George!
