Check out our list of Summer Reading Programs below!


With schools just ending one of the strangest semesters due to COVID-19, summer reading programs are a great to keep kids reading during the summer months. Students who read over the summer break tend to avoid the summer learning loss. Students should be reading at least 10-20 minutes each day, and adults should be reading to non-readers for the same amount of time.

We have lots of really strong libraries in the area, staffed with some of the most awesome media specialists. These programs are a great way to get your kids into the library on a regular basis and often come with prizes that help to keep the reading going, or even to explore the town of Columbus, OH we call home.
