Children’s Summer Reading Program

Let’s make Summer Slide a thing of the past!
20 minutes a day is all it takes.

What has come to be known as “Summer Slide” is the biggest challenge for teachers every fall. Study after study has shown that children who join a summer reading program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and prepared to succeed. Conversely, research has shown that children who do not read during the summer may lose two months or more of the reading progress they had made in school. Find a time that works for you and set it aside for reading; 20 minutes a day is all it takes.

The Weezie Library for Children is happy to offer a summer reading program for children and teens that begins each year in mid-June and runs through the end of August. You may register for the program at the Weezie desk starting in June. Every reader receives a book bag (while supplies last) and a reading record, along with other goodies and helpful tips on making the most of your summer reading.

Each year brings a new theme with accompanying programming and prizes! Make sure to check our current calendar for the latest news and events.
