Libraries Transform: Summer Reading!

Study after study shows that student do better in school when they keep their minds active in the summer. A study of 1,600 students showed that just 4-6 books over the summer helped kids avoid the summer slide.

A big part of keeping kids interested in reading during the summer is when the activity is modeled by others in the home, which is why summer reading for young adults and adults is so important.

We invite you to participate in our "Oh, The Places You’ll Go!" Summer Reading Program for all ages. There will be fabulous programs and prizes all summer long. Happy Reading!

Summer Reading Fun Fact

Summer reading programs began in the 1890s as a way to encourage school children, particularly those in urban areas and not needed for farm work, to read during their summer vacation, use the library and develop the habit of reading. Libraries also now offer summer reading programs for adults, as well as children.
