Summer Reading Programs Explore the Universe in 2019

4/19/2019

The West Virginia Library Commission is pleased to announce the launch of its 2019 Summer Reading Program (SRP)  A Universe of Stories.  Each year, the Library Commission teams up with the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), a national organization providing high-quality, low-cost materials for libraries, to help libraries facilitate summer reading programs.  Children, teens and adults are encouraged to participate throughout the summer in a variety of reading and education programs.

In 2019, the Library Commission will provide each public library in the state with program kits filled with projects, programs, and ideas for a full summer of reading.  You can access the SRP Media Kit and Took Kit on the Library Commission's Communication and Media Services page.

“Studies show that a student’s literacy skills are strengthened when they read during the summer,” said Lisa Hechesky, Library Commission Youth Services Consultant. “It helps them build reading skills, prevent summer learning loss and prepare for a successful school year.  Our goal is for every West Virginia student to pick up a book this summer and read!”

If you have any questions about the 2019 Summer Reading Program, contact Lisa at 304-558-2041 and learn how to Explore, Discover, and Create a universe of stories in West Virginia libraries this summer.
