TUCSON (KVOA) - Summer learning loss can be a real challenge for many students. That is why the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona launched the "My Summer Library" program.

The "My Summer Library" program provided every kindergartner through second-grade student in 18 local schools with 12 free books.

The students get to keep these books for their in-home libraries and can read them over the summer.

The program has distributed more than 25,000 books in Pima County this year.

Jessica Novak serves as the Senior Director of Community Development and Special Projects for the United Way. She said the program is exciting for students as they develop their literacy skills.

The program has distributed over 120,000 books to more than 10,000 students since 2011.

Each classroom teacher will also be receiving a matching set of books this year, totaling 1,440 books for 120 teachers.
