Summer is coming! When kids are out of school over the summer they can lose up to 3 months of skills they learned during the previous school year if they don't participate in high-quality enrichment activities such as the summer reading program at their local library.

Attached are two infographics created by Katelyn Van Lankvelt, a current student at GSLIS, based on The Dominican Study: Public Library Summer Reading Programs Close the Reading Gap<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/dominicanstudy.pdf>. This study was conducted from October 2006 through September 2010 and it examined the impact of pubic library summer reading programs on achievement among 3rd and 4th grade students.

These graphics may be good to...

*         Post in your library during summer reading registration/sign-ups.

*         Share with key stakeholders in your community to encourage them to support the summer reading program.

*         Share with parents to encourage them to help their kids participate in the summer reading program.

*         Share with teachers and afterschool providers so they encourage their students to participate in the summer reading program over the summer.
