Why is Summer Reading Important?

  • It helps keep children from losing the ability they gained during the previous school year.

  • It engages reluctant readers with activities and programming related to reading.

  • It encourages reading as a lifelong habit.

  • It provides opportunities to socialize with peers in a positive setting.

Hundreds of Delta County families participate in our Summer Reading Program every year.  This community-sustained program inspires children, teens and adults to read and explore through exciting and relevant programs, reading incentives, and special activities throughout the summer.
