What the Research says about School Libraries
Research undeniably and repeatedly shows clear links between student achievement and the existence of libraries stocked with a variety of resources, and staffed by qualified librarians who collaborate with teachers.

Summer Reading

Summer is quickly approaching, and with it comes some great opportunities for students to continue to learn on their own and prevent the β€œsummer slide.” The summer slide is the loss of skills during the time when students are not in school. The top ways parents can ensure their child reads over the summer are:

1. Take kids to the library

2. Take books on trips and vacations

3. Find book series so there are multiple books to read

4. Build reading into children’s daily summer routine or schedule
