Keep kids reading all summer with a range of reading resources, including a selection of summer reading lists and reading incentive programs.


Summer months give kids an important opportunity to read for complete enjoyment and to discover new books. Also, research demonstrates that children who don't read during the summer can l**ose** up to three months of reading progress. Students will bring home a Summer Reading ‘Millionaire Club’ Ticket & Flier. On the back, they can record books that are read over vacation. In August, be sure to return the completed signed ticket in August 2012 to the Library. Each student will receive a special bookmark to recognize their efforts. There will also be a prize drawing from all the completed signed tickets!
