Summer Reading: The Win/Win Program

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

Shrewd young readers choose titles from the new-books shelves in the Youth area.
