Summer Reads – Revisit a Classic

So…those books everyone read in high school, well, not everyone read them. Here are a few you really should make time for so you get the Holden Caulfield references you hear around the water cooler.  Even if you read them in high school or college, you’ll have a different perspective on them now that you’ve been out in the world for a while.

Reading is the Gateway to Your Child’s Success

Any librarian will tell you, reading opens doors for children. It contributes to better performance in school, better behavior, higher graduation rates, better economic outcomes and employment opportunities and though not nearly as noteworthy, the ability to contribute to the water cooler conversation in adulthood.  

Start early and make it a part of your everyday routine with your child. Over the summer, don’t let that routine “slide,” because it keeps your child on track for the next school year. Enroll your child in a summer reading program at your local public library.
