Summer Reading is a national program designed to encourage children of all ages to read throughout summer break. Studies have shown that when children read, it increases vocabulary, curiosity, and memory, creates opportunities to build listening skills, and forms a foundation for scholastic success. One of the goals of the Shelby County Public Library is to inspire life-long learning, and one of the first steps towards that is our summer reading program.
When your daycare signs up, each class will be given a form to keep track of the books your class reads together, as well as a form let us know how many children are in each class.
Once your class has read the specified number of books, turn the forms into Rebecca or our Children’s Department, so we can give the correct amount of books to your class so each child can take one home.
