Why do families register for the library’s Summer Reading Program? As it turns out, they are making a very good choice.
The library is a forum for adults, teens and kids to come together in a community bound by love of literacy.
There are compelling reasons to participate in the program, according to the American Library Association.
The benefits to school-age readers in a summer reading program include:
- encouragement that reading become a lifelong habit
- reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities
- reading over the summer helps readers keep their skills up
- the program can generate interest in the library and books
