Last week marked the end of school for many elementary schools and with it, summer! Embrace running in the streets, enjoy the county fair and swim at your local pool. But when the weather gets too hot and your feet too sore, the adventure doesn’t have to stop.
Many Bergen County Public Libraries are hosting the Dream Big-Read! reading program this summer. Dream Big-Read! provides children with book logs to keep track of summer reading and participating libraries will host a variety of reading club get-togethers and events available to all ages!
Above all, we urge children to get out and read as much as you can, just remember to update your logs and check in for weekly prizes! The program is currently open for registration and begins at many locations June 25thwith a celebration and kick-off party. So encourage your children to get involved, enhance their vocabulary and imagination while earning prizes in the process!
Visit the Bergan County Cooperative Library systems’ kid’s page to find links to your local Libraries Programs.
Additional reading recommendations and support can be found through the New Jersey Summer Reading Program.
