Why is summer reading important?

Summer reading programs are an affordable, effective way to keep children’s emerging reading skills sharp. Summer reading programs are also fun and engaging for young people!

From the American Library Association’s website: “Numerous studies have shown that summer programs help ensure that school children retain reading and learning skills over the summer recess.” Read more HERE.
