Summer Reading Program


Summer Reading Program

“Summer Slide” is not a game your children play. It describes what happens when their minds sit idle for three months. When children don’t read over the summer, they can fall 2 years behind by 5th grade.

It’s ALWAYS important to support your child’s learning at home. And over the summer it is critical.

Studies indicate that library Summer Reading programs have a very positive effect on children’s literacy skills. Through the 8 weeks of our Summer Reading Program, the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library and The Youngwood Area Library present almost 300 programs for birth through teens. Our theme-based programs incorporate Common Core and include STEM/Literacy opportunities. But what allows our Summer Program to be meaningful and productive is that our emphasis is on FUN … ALWAYS FUN!

Prizes offered for time read motivate our reading club members to experience what can be found between the covers of a good book and to keep reading through the summer!
