  2. KSTP covered our June 2016 book fairs where we got 2,000 kids 10 books each. We do that each year at the start of the summer after 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade to create 30 book libraries. In 2016 we were at all 28 Minneapolis Public Schools with at least 50% of the kids on free or reduced lunch. The program is research based, and we have a team or researchers looking at data to see if we can in fact replicate the effect of a bigger increase in reading scores than is achieved with 3 years of summer school, at 1/60th the cost.
