Educational studies have shown that the summer reading program has positive effects on students in that voluntary reading correlates with high levels of reading achievement, increased comprehension, and prevents a student’s academic ‘summer slide’ and counters learning loss.

Here are some additional benefits of having students enroll in the summer reading program:

  • Young children will gain self-confidence and a love for reading, books, and the library.
  • The groundwork will be laid for children to become lifelong readers and learners.
  • Entire families will have the opportunity to participate in age-appropriate summer reading events.
  • Completion of the program will give children a sense of accomplishment and belonging.
  • Parents and caregivers will gain knowledge about early literacy and learning activities at the library that they can continue at home.
  • The library becomes a community destination for more families during the summer.
