Reading with the Library

Help to make your child's summer reading enjoyable and they'll avoid the summer slide!

Don’t let your kids fall victim to the summer reading slide: grab a book and help them explore their imaginations, learn new facts and continue their learning all year-round. Of course, we all know that it’s important for kids to pick their own reading sources, but YOU can take them to the library. Check out Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library’s Discover Summer reading program for inspiration:

  • Pick up activity booklets, log goals and activities and redeem prizes. There are
    programs for 12 and younger and 13 – 18.
  • The library’s 41 branches are also bursting with summer programming.
