The West Fargo Public Library summer reading program – Summer Boost – returns June 1, 2023. This year's theme is "All Together Now" so we are celebrating friendship, community, and working together. Summer Boost includes:
Participants of all ages the Summer Boost online challenge! Ages 0 - 5 are encouraged to practice early literacy skills to earn prizes. Ages 6 and up track reading hours to earn their rewards.
Summer Boost online challenge registration is open now on Beanstack, which can be accessed via web browser or the Beanstack mobile app. The challenge runs June 1 through July 31.
Summer Boost offers opportunities for people of all ages to learn, meet, share, read, play and create.
For kids, reading and learning during the summer has proven to benefit children as they return to school in the fall. Even a small amount of reading, just fifteen minutes a day, can be a great help to stop the "summer slide" — learning loss that occurs when children are out of school in the summer.
For teens and adults, Summer Boost encourages reading as a lifelong habit and gives them an opportunity to keep reading, learning and having fun!
