Summer Reading Club is just around the corner! Starting June 13, the whole family can sign up for KDL’s Summer Reading Club and have fun reading this summer! This year, the club runs from Monday, June 13 to Saturday, August 6.
With new activities for babies and adults, KDL’s Summer Reading Club really does offer something for everyone! There’s Baby Bingo for babies 0-18 months, One World, Many Stories for kids 18 months through 5th grade, You are Here for teens grades 6-12, and Novel Destinations for adults. Meet your reading goals and enter to win great prizes such as gift certificates, a new bicycle, and even a Barnes & Noble Nook Color eReader.
Not only is KDL’s Summer Reading Club 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.” The Kent District Library aims 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 the Summer Reading Club starting June 13 at any of KDL’s 18 branch locations.
