News & Announcements

Family Reading

Mayor Ron Nirenberg and the San Antonio Public Library kicked off “Our Family Reads: The Mayor's Book Club” this month. What does “our family reads” bring to mind? For some of us it might be children snuggled up with parents or grandparents for a bedtime story. For others it might be everyone silently reading their own book, newspaper, or magazine. It could even be listening together to an audio book in the car or in the house!  A family that reads together explores, learns, and succeeds together.

Here are a few ideas for nurturing reading and family time:

  • Visit your San Antonio Public Library, in person or online, and look for books. If you search online, you can easily place a hold on items you would like and receive an email notification when they are ready to pick up.
  • Choose books that each of you will enjoy. Try to find at least a couple books that each person can get excited about reading. Ask your children’s librarian for recommendations.
  • Get comfortable! Whether it is an oversized chair, a soft spot on the floor, bed, a lap, or the dining room table, having a comfortable place with good lighting will help extend the amount of time spent reading.
  • Talk about what you read. Young children might offer a simple sentence about how much they enjoyed a book or show you their favorite illustration. Adults and older children can model conversations about books. How does what you have read or seen in a picture relate to your everyday life?
