Keep Children Reading All Summer Long

Every summer, public libraries all across Utah offer a summer reading program to encourage children to read during the summer. A summer reading program can prevent summer reading loss and offers advantages for struggling and/or reluctant readers. Along with the summer reading program, public libraries support literacy efforts by encouraging lifelong reading by providing access to books, eBooks, audiobooks, internet, computers and literacy based programming.

Contact your local public library for more information about its Summer Reading Program.
