Over the summer it can be difficult to help kids retain knowledge they’ve learned from the school year, but having children read is one way to keep them learning.
Quincy Public Library is hosting events throughout the summer and helping parents continue to teach kids over summer break.
Librarians say reading can prepare children to go back to school in the fall.
“Keep on reading, it helps with their cognitive skills, it helps with their memory, it helps with their self-esteem, and it keeps them ready so they’re ready for September,” said Bill F. Waters, children’s librarian at QPL.
The library is hosting reading programs for all ages throughout the summer to help promote reading and learning.
