"Our goal during the summer is to help prevent the summer slide by encouraging kids to read at least five books over the summer, which is the California Library Association's recommendation", Craig said. "In the short term it helps with the summer brain drain that happens when they go back to school in the fall". Activities will include stories, crafts, music, movies, puppet shows, guest entertainers, and more. Visit the library to see all the exciting summer activities planned for children and their grown-ups.

For the second year registration and tracking of reading and task completion will take place online, enabling anyone to take part in the program from home or on vacation using a mobile device or by using the computers at the library. "We want to fill that summer gap with fun learning experiences", she said.

Participants may register online at any time throughout the reading program.
