Summer brings with it a boatload of relaxing activities, not the least of which involves cracking open and losing yourself in a new book.
Johnson County Library’s Summer Reading program makes it easier for readers young and old to soak up stories digitally or in print and potentially snag some fun prizes in the progress.
Running now through Aug. 8, the program’s online component offers folks the ability to track their progress, get reading suggestions and connect with a community of fellow summer readers. Paper reading logs are also available for printing online or pickup for kids to track their reading or listening adventures.
Students benefit from summer reading in particular. Reading as few as six books over the summer helps a student remember what they learned the previous school year.
