Children of all ages are invited to join the Livingston County Library this summer for a ‘Galactic’ good time as the 2019summer reading program, A Universe of Stories, blasts into action. This summer’s theme explores all kinds of space topics.
Reading during summer vacation is important to children to help prevent the“summer slide” so that children do not lose any of their school year gains. The summer reading program is a way for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to provide readers with the motivation to read daily. It is also important to read aloud together. Children too young to read themselves gain vocabulary and listening skills from being read to, but so do older, independent readers.
The Children’s Department is thrilled to be able to provide a summer reading program that will help prevent the slide. A Universe of Stories ensures that a wide variety of space themed stories and activities will be highlighted.The program will kick off with a special event in Simpson Park Wednesday, June 5from 10:00 a.m.to 11:00 a.m. There will be games and snacks while supplies last. There will also be a sign-up booth and information about summer reading available.In the event of rain, the outside reading program will be canceled.
