Summertime and the Reading is Easy!
Come to the library for a multicultural celebration with activities and treats to celebrate the start of the Library's annual Summer Reading program.
What is Summer Reading? Summer Reading is a great way to connect with others who like to read, while reading what you want at your own pace. Fun activities are happening all summer long, and everyone in New York City, from babies to children to teens and adults, can sign up. Best of all, it's free!
Why read over the summer? Studies show that children and teens who read during the summer are better prepared for school in the fall. Also, reading for fun results in significant gains in vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Plus, summer activities and trips always call for good books!
How can I motivate my child or students to read? Joining Summer Reading is a great first step. Encourage young people to explore all sections of the library to discover new topics or books of interest. Most importantly, children and teens who see adults around them reading are more likely to read themselves- so the whole family can read together all summer long!
