Abstract"Many young people lack a quiet place to read or have no adult model to foster a desire to read. S.S.R. attempts to provide both." (Moore, 1980, p.446) - The need identified by Moore supplied the impetus for this study. Young people are not always given an opportunity at home or at school to experience the pleasure and value of reading. When this problem was recognized at Hollands Memorial, a solution was sought. A program of Uninterrupted Sustained Silent Reading was introduced and it was decided to study the program in depth. - After a year of U.S.S.R. the students' attitudes towards reading were measured and changes noted. The findings confirmed that positive attitude change had occurred. How much of the change was a result of U.S.S.R. is difficult to estimate but it is felt that U.S.S.R. had a significant role to play in that change.
