  • text: Early Learners, Sonoma County Library Summer Reading, June 1-August 10, 2019, It's Showtime at your Library

This summer, read, visit, and discover new things in your community with the Sonoma County Library Summer Reading Challenge! Instill a love of reading, and prevent the "Summer Slide" -- children who participate in Summer Reading and read a minimum of 5 books over the summer score higher in reading AND math when they return to school.

The Summer Reading Challenge runs from June 1 – August 10, 2019. There are two different levels for children to participate: Early Learners (for ages 0-5), and Kids Grades K-6 (for elementary age students). Visit the Sonoma County Library Summer Reading Challenge page for details of how the program works.

There is something fun going on at your library every week during the summer. Come to the library, check out the show, get a library card, and enjoy some books!

For Parents:

Summertime is the perfect time for children to continue improving their reading skills. Bring your child to the library to check out books on all the subjects they love— those lazy summer days will be filled with imagination and exploration in the world of books!

Children who don't read during the summer can lose up to two months of learning by the time they return to school in the fall. Library Summer Reading programs provide support and incentive to students to keep reading all summer long.
