Libraries Encourage Summer Reading to Reinforce Learning, Help Reduce Summer Slide

Worcester County Library invites you to dive into summer reading.  The free, annual program gives children and their families the opportunity to access the many resources the library has to offer and participate in reading challenges.  Enriching programs are planned throughout the summer months at all five branch libraries.  Join us for events that feature pirates, magic, music, movement, and STEAM.  Registration begins June 13.

This year’s theme, “Oceans of Possibilities,” is a celebration of all aspects of oceanography and marine life and the importance of taking care of our planet.

Worcester County Library promotes reading and literacy by offering access to books and special programs to encourage everyone to keep reading and prevent summer learning loss, also known as "summer slide."  Practicing reading skills for twenty minutes a day will help children maintain their school-year gains and be better prepared for a successful school year in the fall.  Recommended reading lists for all age groups can be found on the library’s website.

Summer Reading is not just for children - the library also has programs for teens and adults.  For those participating in the reading challenge, the library has some incredible prizes available, including the chance to win ocean-themed building kits, giant stuffed animals, Amazon gift cards or a Kindle Fire.

For a full schedule of our free activities, check out our 2022 Summer Reading Program on our website or pick up a copy at your local branch.  For more information, visit www.WorcesterLibrary.org.
