Summer Reading Program
Summer Reading is a program that entices students to read when school is not in session, thus helps children and teens retain and improve the reading skills gained during the school year. Over 85% of parents surveyed agree that their children read more this summer because of the program, that their reading skills improved due to the program, that the program has made their children more excited about reading, and that independent reading done outside of school assignments because children want to is vital to their literacy skills. Summer Reading Programs works by encouraging students to set goals, choose books, reach reading milestones with the help of parents and library staff, and best of all, participants get to collect incentive and earn cool prizes as rewards for their reading efforts. Over 700 children and teens signed up for the 2008 Summer Reading Program. Congratulations to all our summer readers! We count on you to make our Summer Reading a smashing program; count on us to make it a rewarding and enjoyable summer for you!
Celebrate September, National Library Card Month
September is Library Card Sign-up Month and National City Public Library wants to make sure that parents and children have the smartest card of all – a library card. A library card has always been the most important school supply of all. Kids can come to the library to get homework help, check out books, and use the Internet to make after school life a little more fun. Of course, library cards are not just for kids. According to a recent household survey by the American Library Association, 44% of parents report that they bring their children to the library because it gives them something to do together. Parents can help their children explore new interests and, at the same time, enjoy a family program or pick out a best seller for themselves. Best of all, family time at the library won’t break the bank. The library and its resources are free with a library card. Parents, make sure your kids gear up for school by signing up for a library card! No matter how crammed the backpack or a family’s schedule, there’s always room for the smartest card of all, a library card. For more information on how you can sign up for your library card visit the library or call Circulation Desk at (619) 470-5821. Library Events
