One World, Many Stories - Summer Reading 2011

Online registration starts Sunday, May 15!

You do not want to miss Summer Reading in the Children's Dept. this year! Our theme is "One World, Many Stories" and will begin on Tuesday, June 7 at 10:30 am and run through Tuesday, July 26 at 10:30 am for kids in pre-school through 5th grade.

Summer reading is a great way to help preschoolers learn early literacy skills, school age children and teens avoid the "summer slide" and for adults to model the joy of reading to their children.

Our emphasis is to:

    Motivate children to read or be read to
    Develop positive attitudes about reading
    Enable children to maintain and improve their reading skills
    Encourage children to read for pleasure during the summer

More information will be coming soon! In the meantime, check the online calendar to see the great events we have planned for your child beginning in June!

Have a great summer!
