Summer 2020: Imagine Your Story
Bookmark this page to easily return for details about our 2020 Online Summer Reading Program soon!
The program begins June 15!
2020's summer reading program theme is Imagine Your Story! And, like the imaginative information inquirers we librarians are, we're ready to share our story and help you share yours, with a variety of new, virtual challenges and programs for all ages to enjoy! Whether you prefer recording your reading or some more crafty creations, we've planned something for you.
Why do we participate in a summer reading program? To share our love of books and the importance of literacy with our community! Summertime is a great break from the school year or an 8-month winter, but summer vacation can also account for learning loss (known as summer slide) in students. Reading over the summer and reading for pleasure can change attitudes about reading (choosing a book to read vs. being assigned a book to read). Participating in a summer reading program can instill a life-long love of reading, increase reading ability, and promotes a general interest in books and libraries. Sign us up!
