What is Summer Reading?
Summer reading programs are tailored to different age groups (early literacy, children, teens and adults) and promote literacy and community in a fun way. Each summer a theme is picked and content is created around this theme that libraries can use. Depending on the age group, different skills are highlighted. The early literacy program helps young children build reading and language skills by fostering a love of reading and building confidence in children surrounding books and the library. The adult summer reading program offers a variety of ways for adults to pursue the enjoyment of reading.
Who can join the program?
