Register for the Summer Reading Program from June 1-6. Stop by the library, register for the program, and find out more about the 19 FREE events and activities planned this summer for preschool to high school youth.
Studies show that students who do not read during the summer can experience the “summer slide,” losing ground in learning and returning to school less ready for the next school year than when they began their summer break. Research shows that students, who read at least eight books over the summer, curb the “summer slide” and return to the classroom ready to learn.
So take a book along to the park, an audio book along on a long car trip, or even break out the comic books. Students of all ages can have fun reading and earning prizes at the Wauseon Public Library.
The Wauseon Public Library’s Summer Reading Program was a tremendous success this year! Over 220 children read over 186,677 minutes. That’s over 2,000 hours of reading in five weeks!
“Last year, over 370 kids participated in the Summer Reading Program…the largest number EVER! They read for over 247,500 minutes. That’s over 668 minutes per child or over 11 hours per participant,” shared Children’s Librarian Rachel Dominique. “We hope to see your child or teen reading with us here at the Wauseon Public Library this year.”
