The Post Public Library will offer the Texas summer reading program, "Dig into a Good Book" for readers of all ages. Summer reading registration begins June 3 at the library, 105 E. Main. According to information provided by Post librarian Peggy Ashley, research shows a drop in literacy skills among students who don't read over the summer. "Encourage your kids to read what they want as long as it is on or above their grade level to maintain what they have worked so hard to achieve this past year." Summer reading can also help fill an achievement gap. "Plan your summer schedule to include reading each day. Keep track of what is read, try new authors and interests, encourage older family members to read to younger siblings."
Parents must accompany children who don't have a library card. Library cards are free. When you sign of for the summer reading program you'll receive a free reading log, bookmark and help with planning your summer reading success. A good reading plan can save you from "I'm bored, wat can I do?" Dig in and let's read!
