Summer Reading and Kids' Learning
  - Did you know that young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer? Take a look at this video produced by Horizons National that demonstrates the 
importance of summer learning and the long-term effects on literacy it can have on our kids. Children who take part in educational programs during the summer start the next school year ready to learn! 
Read, Explore, and Connect at your library this summer to have fun and succeed in school!
