Summer Reading Program at the Sulphur Springs Public Library is an answer to the summer slide, a time when children do not keep up their reading skills, according to Librarian Hope Cain. Cain said is to read for fun in the summer is a great way to help children to be prepared for the start of school in August. Everyone likes something, she said. Some like to read about animals, some about cars, some like mysteries, some non-fiction, everyone has some interest that can be found in reading.
A reading log is available to children to keep up with what they have read. Also, children receive small prizes for reading during the summer program.
Currently, the local library is working with the ECLC with a program called 1-K before K. The object is to have children read 1,000 books before Kindergarten. Visit the library for more details.
