The Youth Summer Reading program will be in full swing right after school ends today, Friday, May 30. Keeping children actively reading over the summer helps them remember what they have worked so hard to learn this year and will help them start school strong in the fall.
Babies and toddlers need to be read to, too! Reading with babies and toddlers helps them learn the rhythm of language and the phonemic sounds necessary for learning to read, it helps build their vocabulary, and it instills the importance of reading at a young age.
You can print your reading log from our website today or pick a log up from the Library beginning June 2. Read 3 books, hours, or days by Monday, June 2 and the first 1,000 children will get a crazy hair rubber duck. Our Summer Reading Kick-off Party will be Monday, June 2— join us for a wild time!
