Children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to two months of learning by the time they return to school in the fall. The Friends support the Summer Reading Program at Augusta County Library to help children practice essential skills and to remind them that reading can be fun!
Although it is never too late to start, children should be read to when they are very small, even before they can walk and talk. The Friend’s support curriculum-based storytimes and programs at the Library as a fun way to introduce children to books, to help build vocabulary and other literacy skills, and to help prepare children for kindergarten.
As children enter their teen years, competing interests often pull them away from the Library. By supporting the Teen Zone and programming for kids grades 6 to 12, the Friends help provide a safe place for teens to gather, learn, relax and complete homework.
