Reading during the summer has been proven to benefit children as they return to school in the fall. Even a small amount of reading, just fifteen minutes a day, can be a great help to stop the "summer slide" — learning loss that occurs when children are out of school in the summer. The Summer Reading Program at the West Fargo Public Library works to encourage children to continue reading and learning all summer long, so they enter the new school year ready to learn.
The Summer Reading Program runs from June 1 to July 31 with events and reading incentives for all ages. The theme of the 2020 Summer Reading Program will be Imagine Your Story, celebrating fairy tales, mythology and the fantasy genre. This year’s program will be unique in that all of our programs will take place online. A website called Beanstack is where you can go to track your hours, win prizes and learn about all of the great activities and events we are planning for this summer!
We also encourage parents and guardians to find us on Facebook to join our Facebook groups. We will directly communicate with you via our Facebook groups throughout the summer!
