This summer, have fun reading, exploring the sciences, and enjoying special programs at your local New Castle County Library. Children will Fizz-Boom-Read!; while teens can Spark A Reaction. Earn fun prizes for your reading between June 1 and August 16.
It's easy. Sign up and track your reading in your own reading log. Earn prizes every week. Choose a free book when you have read just 10 hours. Continue to read and collect cool stuff.
Our libraries offer hundreds of free programs including concerts, story times, teen IMAZINE workshops, Donna Washington, ScienceTellers and much more.
Encourage your child to read by registering for the Summer Reading Club! Visit the library often to choose books and enjoy programs together. Kids who read more read better; they also write better, spell better, and have larger vocabularies.
The New Castle County Summer Reading Club is designed to prevent the "summer slide." Students who don't read over the summer lose some of the reading skills they developed during the previous school year. As a result, skills must then be re-taught when students return to school in September.
We encourage educators to get their students involved in the Summer Reading Club even before summer begins. Get your students excited about the program by encouraging them to visit their local library this summer and to actively participate in the Summer Reading Club. Remember, kids who participate return to school ready to learn.
