The Oakland Public Library has reading, fun, and adventure for children, teens, and adults this summer.
We invite you to hang out, play, meet new people, and read for fun this summer.
Studies show that kids who don’t read during the summer lose approximately two months’ worth of gains made during the school year. But we have you covered, with the kids Summer Reading Challenge.
We know (because studies also show!) that when kids choose their own reading, they enjoy reading more, and when reading is fun, they become better readers. We'd like to celebrate your child's summer experiences by rewarding them for reading, which they can track in their own reading log. Come to any Oakland Library to pick one up.
