  • Summer reading helps kids and teens avoid the "summer slide" (the period during summer break when there is a risk of falling behind in academic knowledge and literacy).
  • Summer reading is great for all ages, not just kids. Everyone can benefit from improving literacy skills.
  • When you participate in the Ames Public Library Summer Reading Challenge you can earn cool prizes!

 

Make your summer full of reading, cool prizes, and fun activities!
