• The SSYRA (Sunshine State Young Readers Award Program) encourages readers to experience books from a variety of levels and genres.  Each year, students get a chance to read the 15 books that have been chosen by a committee made up of qualified school librarians from the state Florida.  This fun activity culminates with voting for favorite books on the list and participating in a county-wide competition where students get to show off about the books they have enjoyed.  This reading program supports school site curriculum and district educational objectives.
