Stop Summer Slide
Studies show that school-age children lose some of their reading ability over the summer months if they do not continue to read while they are out of school. Summer reading programs help maintain academic achievement and are a proven tool to help bridge this gap.
The TDSRC inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way—the key to building a lifelong love of reading. The benefits of the Club are clear: recent surveys indicate that 87% of kids read more often or the same amount over the summer, and 96% of parents/caregivers agreed that their child maintained or improved their reading skills over the summer!
Summer Fun at Gananoque Public Library!
Our programs are starting the week of July 4th. From storytimes to workshops, there are lots of opportunities for children to laugh, learn and develop literacy skills. For the latest information about our programs, please check the library website and Facebook page.
