Teen Summer Programs Week 1

I'm so excited that Summer Reading has started! I hope that you're talking to your teens about reading this summer. The Summer Slump is real and studies have shown that those who don't read over the summer can loose literacy skills.

The National Summer Learning Association states: "A conservative estimate of lost instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year."

Reading through our summer reading program helps with the Summer Slump and will enter teens in to raffles for great prizes every week and at our end of summer give away. Teens have until June 6th, our first drawing, to get a head start on their reading. Teens can submit what they've read online.

What's Going On This Summer?

Not sure where to start? Check out our Calendar. I'll be sending an update each week with the Children's Room letting you know what's going on.

Signing Up For Summer Reading

Teens can sign-up any time! Teens will get a Summer ID, the number they'll use each time they submit their reading logs for summer reading. Check with the Library after for signing up for your Summer ID number.
