The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and school is winding down. That means it’s time for summer and Summer Reading at the Library!
Participating in a summer reading program can help kids and teens retain the skills they have gained during the school year. Studies have shown that when kids and teens read during the summer, they are more likely to succeed when the new school year begins. Summer slide, or summer learning loss, can be challenged by reading books and engaging in out-of-school learning opportunities. Fortunately, the Library has many fun and educational programs planned for those long, hot summer days, as well as excellent booklists to help kids, teens and their families stay sharp all summer long.
You can sign up for Summer Reading at CLP – Main during Extravaganza on Sunday, June 9th or by visiting a Carnegie Library near you. You can also register and track your reading online, and when you’re ready, stop by a neighborhood location to pick up fun prizes!
The Library will have special activities and programs for everyone to encourage learning and fun all summer long. We hope to see you there!
