Youth Summer Reading Program at your Local Library

Your local library can help your children avoid the “summer slide,” the loss of knowledge and academic skills that can occur over summer break. Our summer reading logs and incentive programs for kids and teens can help keep skills up. Kids who mark their reading logs can bring them to the library each week for a terrific prize. Stop by your branch to pick yours up! Teens who do summer reading can win prizes, too. We also offer engaging, fun programs and educational resources to keep your child learning. Last summer our county libraries provided over 500 active programs for children and teens, and put hundreds of reading logs in the hands of young learners. This summer’s theme is Build a Better World, so come visit us and join the fun!

You can find events for everyone in your family this summer at your favorite local library!
