Read it Forward on all Campuses 
Books animated clip
The "Read It Forward" program began on March 6th and will run through May 1, 2015. "Read It Forward" is a reading program designed to encourage students in grades 3-12 to read independently for pleasure and then to share their enthusiasm for the books with their peers. The program's free-choice reading motivates students to try new and unfamiliar authors and genres, whether they are fiction, nonfiction, or graphic novels. This is the third year for SISD students to participate in this program that is being sponsored by the SISD libraries. "Read It Forward" provides an extension to the library, with greater access to popular books. 

"Read It Forward" paperback books are displayed on each campus. The students are able to select books they want to read, and then they pass them on to someone else to read or drop them off at the displays. 
Each book contains the following directions: 
Read the book. 
Autograph the inside cover. 
Pass it on to a friend to read next or drop it in a "Read It Forward" box. 
Tell a friend about the book. 
On May 1st, the books will be collected and signatures tabulated to determine the popularity of the books.
