  • Summer Reading isn't just for kids
    Posted on: Tuesday, June 06, 2017

    Summer Reading is for everyone! You might remember participating in summer reading as a kid, but our program is for all ages-- even adults.

    Studies have shown that reading can stimulate your mind, reduce stress, improve your memory and concentration, and strengthen your analytical thinking skills. Even better, it only takes 20 minutes of reading each day to enjoy these benefits. "Reading" doesn't mean you have to sit perfectly still in a chair with a 900-page book from another century. Your 20 minutes per day will net you the same benefits from reading no matter if you're "reading" in print, digital, or even audio formats.
