Children’s Summer Reading

kids booksThe Summer Kids Club program is a unique program that encourages kids of all ages to read during summer break. The program takes place from June to August and is open to all young readers and pre-readers, birth to age 11.
For registration information, please feel free to contact us at or our Service Desk at 203-736-1482

Participation in the Summer Kids Club program helps maintain and enhance reading skills acquired during the school year, promotes early literacy and can motivate a reluctant reader. Pre-readers, including toddlers, preschoolers and children entering kindergarten, are welcome to join the reading program by having an adult or older child read to them. It’s never too early to experience a reading program and begin a lifelong love of books.
