The Manchester District Library’s summer reading program’s kickoff is Friday, June 16, 2017 at 12pm; and the program will run through Friday, July 28, 2017.
Help your children maintain and even improve skills during the summer months. Kids make progress during the school year, but it’s summer where they fall behind.
Michigan’s public libraries provide free, voluntary reading programs throughout the summer for children and teens. The programs encourage reading through learning challenges, online games, events, contests and prizes. These activities engage children in their personal lives and interests, motivating them to read for their own directed learning.
Children become fluent readers through sustained reading and by seeing others choose reading. Libraries can give you information on family literacy skills and they provide developmentally appropriate programs for a wide range of ages to create fluent readers. The Manchester District Library can help your children maintain and even improve their reading skills over the summer. The 2017 program theme is Build a Better World and literacy programming will be based on a range of topics to support our world.
The first program starts on kickoff day (Friday, June 16, 2017) from 1-1:45pm in the Village Room (1 floor below the library). The A2 Magician will be performing his A2 Magic Build a Better Magic Show. This program will include wonderful reading routines, amazing magic, and a bonus gift for the kids. The A2 Magician has perfected his hilarious routine, having performed over 15,000 live children’s and family performances nationwide, and is sure to be a hit. This program is intended for all ages.
The Manchester District Library’s summer reading program is also open to teens and adults, both of whom will have available events, reading objectives, and prizes. All summer reading program events are free and open to the public (no library card necessary). Some require reservations in advance, and some may be limited to certain age groups. See the events list for details.
