The Seneca Falls Library will host programs designed to keep kids reading during the summer months.
Ask any teacher about drawbacks to summer recess and many will answer, “the summer slide”. School-aged children spend nine months learning and advancing in reading, science, art and other areas. Then summer hits. Minds become focused on baseball, swimming and vacations. Many children do little to no reading during the summer months. Academic advances made in the previous school year are lost. When these children return to classes in the fall, teachers often note a distinct slide backwards in reading skills. That is why the Seneca Falls Library is a proud participant in the Summer Reading Program.
During the months of July and August, the Seneca Falls Library will offer a full calendar of fun programs geared towards keeping kids reading during the summer months. This year’s theme is “Tails and Tales” and will help children to exercise their minds by learning about animals and wildlife and through programs which encourage creativity.
This summer, the Seneca Falls Library will offer kids over 30 different programs presented on 80 occasions! There will be a mix of both in-person and online programs.
Information on the Summer Reading Program and all upcoming events is available on the Seneca Falls Library website at www.senecafallslibrary.org.
