An Easy Antidote to Summer: READ

Although off to a late start, summer’s finally upon us, which means it’s time for Bryant Library’s annual Summer Reading Bingo. If your student did not receive a form, click here to print from home. We designed our Bingo to encourage readers to reach broadly–break out of the tried and true–and beat “summer slide.”

Literacy experts note that summer slide, the loss of learning, occurs when students are out of the school habit. For a little more information, click here. Fortunately, reading, in all its shapes and forms, can help students maintain those sharp noggins! Reading to self, reading with someone else, being read to, or listening to audio books are all ways to stay ahead.

Be sure to click on our RESOURCES tab on this webpage for summer reading suggestions and more. Enjoy summer and READ!

Librarians for a Day!

Thanks to our “Librarians for a Day,” 1st grader Gabriella H. and 2nd grader Sally R. After short tutorials, they assisted checking in and shelving books and delivering items to several classrooms. In addition to running the library, Sally and Gabriella helped host and introduce author Drew Daywalt, pictured above. We could not have functioned as smoothly on Friday without their gracious contributions. Thanks, Librarians for a Day!
