Children and teens are invited to visit their local branch library to register for the free Summer Reading Program Monday, June 22– August 2, 2015.

Summer is a time for relaxation and fun, but it is also a time when many children, especially struggling readers, lose some of their reading skills. Families can help prevent this loss by keeping their children reading over the long summer break. One of the easiest ways to do this is to visit your local library!

During the summer OC Public Libraries conducts a free Summer Reading Program for children and teens of all ages. The program is designed to maintain reading skills during the summer by keeping children excited about reading; incentives encourage children to check out books and to read at their own level. For help in selecting books that match your child’s age, interests, and abilities ask your librarian. And, your favorite branch library may sponsor a reading program for adults, so parents can be in on the fun and be great role models at the same time!

Libraries also offer special events during the summer, from crafts to magic to exotic animals, so check the events calendar.
