SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2019: A UNIVERSE OF STORIES
Join the 2019 Summer Reading Club by signing up June 1st through August 3rd at any public library location or online at Wandooreader.com/elpasolibrary/summer2019. Read just 8 books or 8 hours depending on your reading level. Registration is free and available for people of ALL ages.
Studies show that keeping kids engaged in learning over the summer is the very best way of fighting Summer Learning Loss, the tendency to forget what you’ve learned over the summer. Taking part in programs like Summer Reading Club allows young people to stay active intellectually thus minimizing any learning loss.
The Library will sponsor hundreds of programs for kids of all ages so register today. It’s free and fun and you’ll learn something before you’re done.
