Sunshine State Youth Reader Award (SSYRA) Books

The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 8, in a collaborative effort between the Florida Association of Media in Education (FAME) and the Florida Department of Education (DOE). Local schools often assign these lists to public school students - with the expectation that they will complete all (or a portion) of the list by the end of the school year.

Every year, the Putnam County Library System orders copies of all 15 books on the 3rd-5th grade reading list as well as all 15 books on the 6th-8th grade list.

Patrons can only check out two of these books at a time and must return them within TWO WEEKS. Since these books are in high demand throughout the summer and the school year, an overdue fine of $0.50 a day will be charged in the event any of these books are returned late. Please check your due dates. A lot of children want to read these books.
