Summer Reading Program at the Forsyth County Public Library

As we ease into a slower summer schedule, excitement about FCPL’s annual summer reading program is growing.  Children and their families will “Dig into Reading” this summer, while tweens and teens will experience “Groundbreaking Reads.”  Adults will get a chance to be a part of the fun as well, with a special program geared toward them.

Studies show that reading during school vacation helps maintain and even improve reading skills. The summer reading program is a powerful tool that parents can use to help ensure their children read during the summer months, which will also help prevent an academic summer slip.

Summer reading registration begins on Friday, May 24, 2013 for children, teens, and adults. Patrons may simply visit the library’s website to register or may visit any of the three library branches.
Children and teens will be encouraged to set a reading goal for the summer when they register for the programs. They may record their progress throughout the summer online or by using a free reading log they will receive at registration. Children and teens will have until Saturday, August 24 to meet their reading goals and to claim their rewards. Each child or teen who meets his or her summer reading goal will receive a free paperback book, donated by the Forsyth County Public Library Friends & Advocates.
Adults who register for summer reading will automatically be entered to win a Sony eReader. They will also be able to record their reading online all summer long.  The winner for the eReader will be drawn on Saturday, August 24.
Also check out the Forsyth County Public Library’s events calendar for lots of fun free things to do this summer. The FCPL offers story times, magic shows, free movies and much more.
