Want to Avoid the Summer Slide?...
Start with the Library

Did you know? Children who do not read over the summer will lose more than two months of reading achievement. Here are some things families can do to keep children reading over the summer:

  • Have plenty of reading material around.
  • Form a Library habit.
    • Visit the Library to check out books and enjoy a full line-up of programs.
    • Use the Library from home. E-books and magazines are available online 24/7.
  • Read aloud as a family.
  • Lead by example.
    • Sign kids up for the summer reading program and while you're at it - sign yourself up for the adult reading program.
    • Talk about what you're reading and what you like about it.

Read more about summer learning loss and find additional reading resources at Reading is Fundamental.

We look forward to seeing you and your kids at the Library this summer!
