From the Director: Summer Break Dilemma Solved

Lance WernerAs a parent, I know the dilemma: you want to get your kids outdoors and active in the summer, but you also don’t want their literacy skills to backslide.

KDL has solutions. The Experience Summer @ KDL component of our summer reading programs for children and teens actually rewards them for outdoor, cultural and even play activities.

And when it’s too hot or rainy to play outside, KDLville early literacy play spaces at all 18 branches offer rotating activities including dress-up, art tables, a puppet stage and market stand, where learning and creativity are the focus. They’ll be having so much fun they won’t realize they’re sharpening their literacy skills.
