PDF of the 2014 Summer Reading Statistics for San Juan County
2014 Summer Reading Statistics

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. Third and fourth grade students most at risk and 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. 

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

Youth logged books and noted they were Accelerated Reading during the summer months.  Beginning August 14, you can log in and print the books you read and share them with your teacher, maybe get extra credit for reading during the summer months. Click here to print your list.
