Successful Warren County Public Library Summer Reading Program Helps Youth Avoid that Summer Slump


The Summer Reading Program at the Warren County Public Library will be back beginning Monday, June 5th. Youth Library Cammy Davis shares this summer’s theme is ‘Find Your Voice:’

“We follow the iRead theme. This year’s theme is ‘Find Your Voice.’ This summer we are challenging our patrons to explore how all living things use their voice to share stories, express their self, spark change, not only by the sounds that we make, but by the words that we write, the art we create, the movements that we perform, the actions that we take every day to impact our world, and this year’s program is going to begin on June 5th. Now, we use Read Squared, an online platform for people to log their reading; for the adults and also for the teenagers we use Books Read. Then for the kids we log minutes.”

More than 150 children were registered, more than 54,000 minutes were read, and more than 450 prizes were handed out during last summer’s Warren County Public Library Summer Reading Program.
