2017 Children’s Program: Build a Better World

Programming, materials, and activities for elementary-aged children should be a core part of every library’s offerings year-round. Traditionally, summer reading programs are designed to encourage elementary-aged children to keep reading during summer vacation. Preventing the “summer slide” continues to be the main objective of summer reading programs. For many families with elementary-aged children, the public library is the only community space available during the summer months where they can access free educational and cultural enrichment activities and programs.

The benefits of summer reading programming for children:

  • Children are motivated to read.
  • Children develop positive attitudes about reading, books, and the library.
  • Children maintain their reading skills during summer vacation.
  • Children have access to experiences that further their sense of discovery.
  • Children have access to experiences through which they can learn to work cooperatively.

Putting together a cohesive summer reading program for elementary aged children does not need to be complicated. The CSLP manual provides everything you need to create a fun and successful program, including excellent program ideas, book and music lists, crafts, Internet resources, and much more.
