Summer is in almost here. We can all see and feel it coming just around the bend. No matter what you have going on this summer you may want to consider checking out these fun and engaging reading programs brought to us by our library system. My kids have participated and they have fun, get free books, collect stickers, and feel more engaged and motivated since they have to check in weekly at the library. It also gets us to go!
