Summer Reading is just around the corner! Starting June 1, the whole family can sign up for Summer Reading @ KDL and have fun reading this summer! This year, the program runs from Friday, June 1 through Friday, August 31.
With activities for babies, kids, teens and adults, KDL’s Summer Reading Program really does offer something for everyone! There’s Summer Reading for Babies for babies 0-24 months, Dream Big Read for kids 24 months through 5th grade, Own the Night for teens grades 6-12, and Between the Covers for adults. Our new Experience Summer online badge component will encourage kids to learn not only through reading, but also through seeing, going and experiencing. Meet your reading goals and enter to win great prizes such as gift certificates, get-aways and even an Amazon Kindle!
Not only is KDL’s Summer Reading Program a great way to have fun this summer, but it’s also an important step in helping to prevent what’s known as summer reading loss. Studies show that “students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of summer vacation.” We aim to help prevent summer reading loss by providing programs and activities that encourage learning while children and teens are away from school. By developing these habits now and making learning fun, we hope to help people succeed in school and in life.
Sign up for Summer Reading @ KDL starting June 1 at any of KDL’s 18 branch locations.
