Why are the children’s and teens Summer Reading Programs so important? These programs help develop and
maintain reading skills and literacy levels during the summer. Kids who participate have a better retention of skills once they
return to school than those who do not. It also provides programs, knowledge and entertainment as a free service, and is open
to the entire community. We welcome children and teens of all reading levels and abilities. This is one of the library’s most
direct ways to contribute to education. It coincides with our mission statement to encourage lifelong learning and a love of
books in any form.
