California Summer Reading Challenge
Public library summer reading programs build communities of readers and library users and help prevent summer learning loss. In 2014, over 700,000 Californians signed up for summer reading and over 1.3 million took part in summer reading activities
The California Summer Reading Challenge provides libraries with resources to create innovative summer reading programs that keep California children, teens, and adults reading all summer long.
Help us meet our goal of #onemillionreaders in 2015!
It’s Time for Summer Reading Fun!
Get your groove on this summer and “Read to the Rhythm!”
Anaheim Libraries will be offering reading programs for all ages this summer, with something for everyone to enjoy - stories, music, movies, crafts, books and prizes! As always, Summer Reading Fun for the kids will include themed storytimes and crafts, reading incentives, and energetic programming for all ages.
The benefits of summer reading are clear. National research confirms that students who participate in reading programs over their summer break, scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the school year than those who did not participate.
There will also be reading incentives and special programming for Teens and Adults; including crafts, classic movies, and music events. Check the links in the left column to find out what’s planned at your local branch this month. Sign up at your favorite branch beginning June 15, and don’t miss our “Read to the Rhythm” float in the Anaheim Hills 4th of July Parade!
