Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Summer Reading Program will be different than past years, but still includes a reading challenge with incentives to earn a special NOLS T-shirt, chances to win awesome grand prizes, and virtual events for all ages!
The Library is also introducing a new app and online tool named Beanstack that will be used to track your summer reading progress.
Summer reading is great at any age, but is particularly important for young people. Kids who don’t read during the summer can lose up to a third of what they learned in the previous school year. Summer Reading Program activities aim to engage young people and families to help prevent the “summer slide” and build a lifelong love of reading.
