Summer Reading for all ages—Join the fun with your local library this summer!

Our Summer Reading Program helps keep kids from falling victim to the dreaded “summer slide,” when children can lose important academic gains they made during the school year. Children enjoy skill-building activities, engaging performers and rewarding reading challenges to help them bridge the gap between months out of school while celebrating the love of lifelong learning.

But hey, Summer Reading is for adults, too! Catch up on reading while enjoying summer activities and relaxation. Summer Reading is a terrific way for families to interact around a love of reading. And adults who read provide a good model for their children.
