Parents: Summer reading fosters academic success

Students stay sharp because of summer reading programs During the summer, kids can lose some of the academic gains they made the previous school year. Studies show that students who participate in a summer reading program at their local library, enter the school year more confident and more prepared for school in the fall. AND, reading just four books during the summer can prevent a decline in reading scores. From reading and writing to science and math, our programs and classes keep kids sharp while they are having fun. We will help your kids cruise into the next school year.

Reading Buddies

Grades 1–4 can stop by to practice reading skills with a teen volunteer. Bring a favorite book or read one of ours. Children spend 15 minutes one-on-one with a teen mentor reading aloud and chatting about favorite books and authors to help encourage a lifelong love of reading in a no-pressure environment.
