School Summer Reading Lists
Member libraries of the Delaware County Library System will be participating in summer reading this June. This year's theme, "Dig Into Reading," is all about the wonders under our feet - root vegetables, buried treasure, dinosaur bones, evidence of ancient civilizations and, of course, the critters.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if every child participated in summer reading, and as a result, we raised literacy rates throughout the area? When children read only 16.9 minutes a day, they are exposed to 1,168,000 words a year and test in the 70th percentile. If we dig into reading just a little deeper and average 33.4 minutes a day, they devour a staggering 2,357,000 words a year. Together with the family, libraries can build a stronger future for our children by opening a book for minutes a day. Help us plant the seeds to learning with our summer reading program.
