Prevent the ‘summer slide’ and Read – For the Win!

Readers of all ages are encouraged to read like a champ and bring home the gold this summer as part of the East Central Regional Library’s 2016 summer reading program: Read – For the Win! Youths in preschool through teen are welcome to participate, along with those from all generations, in many of the programs, contests and activities offered. All are free and open to the public.

Reading from June to September is important to prevent the “summer slide,” as children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to two months of learning by the time they return to school in the fall. In fact, children who participate in summer reading programs and read a minimum of six books over the break score higher in reading and math when they return to school. This reflects solid preparation and confidence in reading by the time the first bell rings in the new school year.

To succeed in school and life, children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. Libraries are part of the solution, and summer reading programs remind kids that reading is for fun – as well as for learning. Just think … more than 82 million children attend library programs every year.

Stop by your local East Central Regional Library to learn more about this year’s summer reading program and don’t forget to Read – For the Win!
