Summer reading at KDL returns to Kent District Library

Last year, Kent District Library had the busiest summer reading program of any public library system in Michigan with 28,914 participants. This year’s Summer Reading @ KDL program runs from Saturday, June 1 to Saturday, August 10.

With activities for babies, kids, teens and adults, Summer Reading @ KDL offers something for everyone: There’s Dig Into Reading for kids birth through grade 5, Beneath the Surface for teens grades 6-12, and Groundbreaking Reads for adults. Our “Experience Summer Online @ KDL” virtual program, Dig Into KDL, will encourage participants to learn not only through reading, but also through seeing, doing and exploring. Read and experience for the chance to win great prizes such as gift cards to nearly 20 different stores, a John Ball Zoo membership, iPods, a NOOK eReader and more!

KDL is also offering an exciting line-up of free summer programs, including Dinosaur Dig, Butterfly Bonanza, Get the Dirt on Great Desserts, Underground Music and so much more!

Studies show that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of summer vacation. Kent District Library’s summer reading program is an important step in helping to prevent what’s known as summer reading loss by providing programs and activities that encourage learning while children and teens are away from school, and it’s a great way for families to Get Grounded in Happiness this summer.

Sign up for Summer Reading at KDL starting June 1 at any of KDL’s 18 branch locations. For more information, call 784-2007 or visit www.kdl.org.
