Summer Reading Program Starts
June 1, 2014
Summer reading programs (SRPs) have been a staple for many public libraries since the turn of the twentieth century. Their popularity attests to the continuing value of encouraging reading among primary, secondary grade children and encouraging adults to take part in this popular program across the nation. One of the common assumptions about SRPs is that they are valuable in many ways for the children who participate. Reading practice improves word recognition, builds vocabulary, improves fluency and comprehension, is a powerful source of world knowledge, and is a way to develop understandings of complex written language syntax and grammar.
