2024 Cathlamet Library Summer Reading Program

Parents often say that summer is the most difficult time to find things for their kids to do. Research shows that children who read during the summer do much better in school in the fall. Town Librarian, Vicki Franklin suggests enticing your kids to read by attending the Cathlamet Library's Summer Reading Program "Adventure Begins at Your Library". They'll read books, earn prizes, and have fun.

Summer break is typically a time for kids to kick back, indulge in a little extra screen time, play outside and embrace the kind of freedom that only comes with being young. However, this free time can lead to "Summer Slide” a term used to describe a child's learning loss over the summer months when they are not in school. Experts warn it is hindering kids’ progress when they head back to school. The library's Summer Reading Program will help kids maintain and improve existing reading skills as well as gain a boost in confidence and self-esteem

It's not too late to attend Cathlamet Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. It starts June 26 and runs through July 31, from 1-2 pm at Erickson Park, 581 Columbia Street. Summer Reading is free and is open to local kids as well as those who are visiting for the summer.
