Summer Reading

About Summer Reading

Children and teens who participate in summer library programs benefit from engaging activities and opportunities which promote literacy development and help counter the summer slide. Summer library programs for all ages enhance lifelong learning and provide meaningful, enjoyable experiences available to everyone in the community. The State Library is proud to support libraries in this endeavor.
