Studies have shown that children who read during the summer generally maintain their reading skills and that children who see their parents read, or who read with their parents, generally score higher on standardized tests.
Reading is important for everyone in the community, regardless of age, and reading is a skill that grows with practice throughout a lifetime. It's free, easy to do because you read whatever you like at your own pace, and it's a fun, easy, zero-risk way of showing your support for the public library and its services.
