It’s Going to be a Summer of Opportunities at your local library!
Something exciting is going on at your library this summer – A Summer of Opportunities – the 2020 summer reading program.
For more than 25 years, this annual free program has encouraged children and teens to continue reading during the summer break, combating summer slide, or the loss of academic gains made during the previous school year. Over the years, the program has expanded to include activities for adults also – bringing to life the phrase “lifelong reader” and making the summer reading program a family activity.
Benefits of summer reading
- Summer reading helps make reading a lifelong habit.
- Reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up – resulting in higher reading achievement.
- Participation in summer reading program activities such as crafts, story hours, arts and other special events enhances the reading experience.
How to join
Programs like A Summer of Opportunities make it fun for children, teens and their families to reap the benefits of summer reading. This program offers many opportunities – to read, to learn, to be active and to try something new. In fact, we’re trying something new ourselves this summer – an online summer reading program with all virtual programming and events!
We hope you will join us. It’s easy to join and participation is free.
Registration begins Monday, June 15.
For a complete schedule of A Summer of Opportunities programs and activities, pick up a 2020 Summer calendar (available at curbside pickup) or view the 2020 Summer @ the Library Calendar of Events calendar online.
