Research has documented that there really is a "summer slide," a regression of reading ability experienced by many students who don't keep themselves surrounded by books over the summer.
The best way to combat "summer slide" is to keep reading - and what better way to do it than with free books from the local library!!
Check out the Mt. Laurel Library's Summer Reading program! The theme this year is "One World Many Stories." For every 5 books students read (and report to the library), they will receive a prize, and at the end of the summer, there are larger drawings for bigger prizes.
Kickoff party is Saturday June 25th from 1-3 p.m. at the Mt. Laurel Library. Registration is not required, and there will be crafts, face painting, and more.
Have a great summer!
