Summer Learning 2018 Schedule of Events

 Why be a part of our Summer Learning activities? Children typically experience the “summer slide” during the summer months, and their reading and math skills decline. Summer Learning helps to prevent the slide! And parents say Summer Learning helps their child mainly because it helps keep their kid’s brain active. Plus, Summer Learning is fun! Our 2018 Sumer Learning Theme is “Libraries Rock” and no registration is required unless otherwise indicated.
