Adult Summer Reading

Summer Reading Program 2022

 

Why Summer Reading? 

Studies have shown that Summer Reading for Kids and Teens:

Advances literacy and academic performance by engaging children and teens in reading and reading-related activities during the summer months.
Fosters a love of reading through library programs and services.
Increases successful reading experiences through librarian-supported, self-selected, voluntary reading.
Involves parents and all family members in the library summer reading experience.
Improves children’s access to library materials and activities, which will encourage them to become lifelong readers and library users.
It’s fun and you can win prizes!

And those same studies show that Summer Reading for Adults:

  • Displays the importance of reading, by example, for children and teens in the family
  • Advances adult literacy
  • Increases successful reading experiences through librarian-supported, self-selected, voluntary reading.
  • Helps maintain healthy function for the aging brain
  • It’s fun and you can win prizes!
