Featured Article: Summer Library Program 2019

May 15, 2019

Can you believe that summer is almost here? Here at the library, we are busy getting ready for our favorite season! Every year, we have awesome programs and lots of reading to fill our summer, and we want you to join us! This June, we are going to places unknown and exploring outer space with an entire universe of stories!

I think most kids will agree that summer can be so much! No school, plenty of time outdoors, swimming pools, cookouts, camping, parks, and sleeping in--all the stuff that makes summer great! But summer can sometimes be a bad thing: the average student loses up to three months of learning during the summer months! This can end up leaving a student two years behind by the sixth grade. These statistics are disheartening!

This is where your local library comes in! Our goal is to help students fight that "summer slide" and not lose everything they have learned! No, we don't hold math class and hand out reading lists--we don't want kids to feel like they are still in school. Instead, we want to support them in learning and offer them what we offer everyone--books, information, and knowledge! And we do this in some pretty fun ways.

So get ready to blast off with some cool guest performers! Come meet a magician, a zoo animal, and a musician! Prepare to board a rocket ship or even build your own! And earn prizes while reading along the way! There are so many ways to keep brains active and help kids have fun here at the library.

So won't you join us this summer?
