Summer Reading Club

Coming Summer 2018

Oh The Places You’ll Go!

Summer Reading  & Fun Activities

For Children thru 5th Grade

Registration begins Monday, May 1 , 2018

Activities begin June 4, 2018

With no set hours for the summer reading club, your child can participate even with all their other summer activities. Simply stop by when the library is open to participate. Children who have not yet completed 2nd grade must be accompanied by an adult while at the library.

Research suggests families should aim for 15-20 minutes of reading a day to help prevent the “summer slide,” where reading skills are lost and kids are less prepared to return to school in the fall.

Children and families set their own reading goals, whether by keeping track of time, number of books or pages, or other literacy milestones, such as learning alphabet sounds, shapes, colors, or sight words. The suggested summer reading goal for Northview School students is 20 minutes per day for 20 days of the month.
