Timberland Library Summer Reading Program - Do you have the bug?
Catch the Reading Bug!
Summer reading programs began in the 1890s as a way to encourage school children, particularly those in urban areas and not needed for farm work, to read during their summer vacation, use the library and develop the habit of reading.
Numerous studies have shown that summer programs help ensure that school children retain reading and learning skills over the summer recess.
Summer reading programs are geared for reading for the fun of it. If you can read, thank a teacher. If you love to read, thank a librarian. Libraries are in the business of creating a new generation of readers – people who are curious and love to read. Summer library programs take advantage of children’s natural curiosity to introduce new subjects and different genres – things kids might not study in school but are interested in.
While many libraries have prizes for the number of books read, programs encourage readers of all levels to participate.
