Summer Reading Program at Westerly Public Library

Summer Reading:
The research is clear that children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect.
The long, lazy days of summer offer kids lots of opportunities to discover new interests, new books and the pure pleasure of reading just for fun. Summer is also a great time for hands-on explorations that connect kids to what they're reading — that helps build background knowledge and ensures that children are ready for the challenges of the new school year.

Please be sure to sign up for the summer reading program at the Westerly Public Library. 

Have a fun and relaxing summer!!
