Summer reading is a great way to keep learning through the summer months. Research shows that library summer reading clubs and programs are a great way to keep children on track educationally. Children who read during the summer go back to school ready to learn. And, seeing adults read is a great way to model the joy and importance of reading to children.
The Library welcomes you to the Summer Reading Club 2015! There are great prizes and programs this summer that will keep you and your child excited about reading.
