What is Summer Reading?

  • A free 8-week program at branches of the Public Library that encourages babies, children, tweens, teens and adults to read (or be read to!) throughout the summer.
  • Set your own reading goals, read at your own pace wherever you're most comfortable, and visit the library once each week to collect fun incentive prizes.
  • There are free special events and workshops in our libraries all throughout the Summer Reading Program!
  • Watch this quick video to learn about the summer slide and how to keep your kids learning!

Why is Summer Reading important?

  • Studies have shown that children who read during the summer are more able to maintain their reading skills and that children who see their parents read, or who read with their parents, generally score higher on standardized tests.
  • Reading is important for everyone in the community, regardless of age, and reading is a skill that grows with practice throughout a lifetime. It's free, easy to do because you read whatever you like at your own pace, and it's a fun, easy, zero-risk way of showing your support for the Public Library and its services.
