Why 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. Studies show that summer reading helps to improve comprehension, vocabulary, and proficiency enabling students to return to school in the fall with greater retained skills. 

Reading books over the summer can have a significant impact for middle school readers. Summer programs for youth, tweens and teens encourage readers, especially those who are struggling, to use alternative formats such as e-books and audio-books along with the library's databases.

Summer reading is a foundation for learning and during the summer months it did not stop at the Farmington Public Library!
