Why Summer Boost?

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!
