When we think of Summer (especially this summer after missing out on last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic) we thing of being outside, playing sports, going swimming, biking, hiking, boating, traveling, fairs, festivals, and so much more. BUT we should also remember that Summer is a great time to use the resources at the Quincy Public Library, and even sign up for their Summer Reading Program!

The Quincy Public Library announced in a press release that they are once again bringing back their Summer reading program. In the press release they say...

"The annual summer reading program returns to Quincy Public Library this year! This year’s theme, “Reading Colors Your World,” focuses on bright colors and the many ways reading can expand your world through kindness, growth, and community. Make reading fun for the whole family this summer at Quincy Public Library! Readers are encouraged to get creative, try new things, and find beauty in diversity. Studies have shown that kids who participate in summer reading programs do better when they return to school."

I'll be the first one to admit that when I was a kid I wasn't too keen on reading over the summer, but with kids spending more and more time on their tablets, and video games, this could be a great way to make sure the kids are still learning this summer. And if you read with your kids this summer it can be a great way to foster that love of reading!
