The Wood River public Library is getting ready for its summer reading program.  According to some studies, children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to two months of learning by the time they return to school in the fall, while those who participate in a summer reading program and read a minimum of six book over the summer score higher in reading and math when they return to school.

Library Director Kate Kite says they will kick things off with a tailgate party Saturday, June 11 at 11am.

Leading up to the kickoff, the library will participate in a Food for Fines program, in which you can return your overdue books in exchange for canned food that will be donated to Operation Blessing.  For more information regarding this or other events, call 254-4832 or click on the e-mail link:
