Summer Reading

Information for Parents

Summerreading.org is a great tool to encourage your child to read! Help them create an account and add books to their online shelf throughout the summer.

Here are some tips for growing a reader:

  1. Read to children from the time they are born. It’s never too early to start!
  2. Set aside a special time to read, when you and your family are relaxed.
  3. Children enjoy setting the pace of reading time. Encourage them to turn pages.
  4. Many children like to hear the same story again and again. It comforts them and helps develop language skills.
  5. Visit the library often to choose books and enjoy programs together. Join Summer Reading at your neighborhood library!
