Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I sign up?

A: You can register upstairs in the library starting June 3rd!

Q: Can I register online?

A: Not this year. Because of how our program is structured, it’s not conducive to online tracking. Stop by the desk to register!

Q: Why read during the summer?

A: On average, children lose about two months (!) worth of learning over the summer if they don’t read. It’s nicknamed the “Summer Slide” and can accumulate over the years. That means that by middle school, if a child doesn’t work to retain what they’ve learned, they could be more than 2 years behind their classmates! The good news is: Summer Slide can be prevented! Reading (for enjoyment!) just 20 minutes a day helps children retain what they’ve learned throughout the school year and helps them to start their fall semester more successful. This is especially important this year as students will be away from their classrooms longer.

Reading isn’t the only way to beat the summer slide: try cooking, planting a garden or listening to audio books!

Q: Can I complete the program more than once?

A: The Teen/Young Adult program is unique in that you may continue reading more to earn more entries into the grand prize raffle!  Ask Myra for details!

Q: Do we need to be present to win the prize drawings?

A: No. We will do the grand prize drawings after the program has ended. If you win, you will be notified to pick up the prize at the library. Prizes not picked up by the end of August are forfeited.
