    FROM THE LIBRARY:
    Keep your children reading this summer to prevent the “summer slide” which is learning and reading loss. The Multnomah County Library Summer Reading Program is a great way to keep them reading. They will have goals to reach, prizes to motivate them, and a regular exposure to the library where they are sure to find books that interest them. A Scholastic article says “an overwhelming 92% of kids say they are more likely to finish a book they picked out themselves”.

    More ideas to promote summer reading and the enjoyment of reading:
    1) Read with your child. It provides a shared experience which can improve your relationship too.
    2) Set goals for your child (or with your child) i.e. read 30 min. a day before any television or computer time.
    3) Let them see you reading on a regular basis.
    4) Listen to audio books as a family, either at home or while driving on a long road trip.
    5) Allow them to download approved audio books from the library on their phone or tablet.
    6) Take your child to Goodwill, garage sales, Barnes and Noble, or Powell’s Bookstore and let them choose some books for leisure summer reading. Having a book collection at home has a greater impact on kids’ reading frequency than does household income.

    One other summer request for our Floyd Light Library! Please clip and save your box tops for next school year. With a tight school budget, box tops and Scholastic Book Fairs may be the main way we will be able to purchase new books for the library. Thank you for joining us in keeping our library well supplied!

    Have a great summer with lots of reading adventures!
