2016 Kentucky Summer Reading
Readers of all ages will exercise their minds this summer during the “On Your Mark, Get Set....Read!” Summer Reading Program. Kentucky public libraries have programs to keep children reading and learning all summer. Last year, 146,371 children and teens participated in reading challenges and over a quarter million youth – 258,313 – attended classes and events as part of Summer Reading Programs at public libraries across Kentucky. Whether counting the amount of time your children spend reading or the number of books they have read this summer, children who join the Summer Reading Program at their public library keep their brains active, preventing the dreaded “summer slide”, and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.
