It’s summer reading time! After spending the last four months quarantined indoors, it might be hard to find fun activities for your kids.
Summer reading can be fun and it’s important for children, especially when you consider learning loss.
This hour, join us for our next installment of our Pandemic Book Club to talk about making reading your new favorite family activity.
Coming up we talk about some of our new and old favorite young adult and children’s books. Wondering how to connect with your local library this summer? One of Connecticut’s local children’s librarians joins us to discuss how to connect, get books and stay reading all summer long!
What are you reading this summer? We want to hear from you.
