Highlight of the Month

Summer at the Library

beach ballDid you know summer is one of the busiest times of the year for the children’s department? While some people think it would be a quiet time with families on vacation, it is instead our busiest season.  Programs are built around all age groups to keep everyone reading during the school break.  Children who do not read over the summer vacation lose approximately two months of reading skills, putting them behind their peers as the school year starts again in September.  By offering a variety of events at the library we hope to keep that loss in check!  Bringing children into the library is important to reading retention because a child is more likely to read a book he or she has chosen on their own.  So even if they choose not to participate in a library program like book club or pajama story time, bringing them into the library to choose their own books will help them keep their reading skills from slipping and keep them on target for going back to school.
