The Grade 4 Read to Succeed program is back in person for the 2023-2024 school year.

This program introduces grade four students in Mississauga to their local public library and encourages them to read for pleasure throughout the year. The goal of this program is to ignite the joy of reading and to motivate students to visit the library on a regular basis. At the end of each school year, we celebrate classes with the highest participation rates across Mississauga at a special event at Celebration Square!

Grade four teachers, to get more information about participating and booking an introductory Grade 4 Read to Succeed visit for your class, check the library school partner list and contact your assigned library location. If you have any questions or need more information, email support.library@mississauga.ca.
