Research has shown that reading over the summer prevents summer reading loss. Studies also indicate students who read recreationally outperform those who don’t. Students read more when they can choose materials based on their own interests. Our Libraries are committed to supporting lifelong learning and educational enrichment for all families.
The Del Norte County Library District invites families to get ready, get set, and go to the Library and sign up for our Summer Reading Program. In the theme of Reading Colors Your World, this program is going to launch on July 6, 2021. During the month of July, the Library will host a range of free activities for children, teens, and adults to encourage and support a love of reading.
We will be having a sign up program outside of the library on Wednesday, June 23rd from 1:15 PM to 2:30 PM. At our sign up table, you will be able to register for the Summer Reading Program, and receive a 4th of July gift, and an art project for children to take home. Those who are registered for SRP on this day or before will earn the opportunity to put their name in for a 4th of July gift bag prize drawing.
Our Library staff has planned a wonderful program for learners of all ages to help everyone remember that the Library is a great place to read, learn, and discover what’s available for their enjoyment. We have outdoor story time planned, in-library crafts (like a slime workshop and a rock painting lab!) and take-home STEM activities. For the indoor events, space is limited (10 spots per session) and registration is required for every participant. You may register below or contact us at (707) 464-9793.
