This month marks the annual celebration of National Family Literacy Month, a nationwide initiative to encourage families to read together. Reading together builds and strengthens literacy, encourages a love of reading, and is a great way to spend time together as a family.
Denver Public Library's popular Summer of Reading program is in full swing for 2011. Make sure the kids and teens in your life sign up online or at any branch library location through July 30.
For many years, Summer of Reading has been a great way to encourage kids and teens reading during their summer break. Keeping young readers engaged and curious about reading and learning prepares them for the upcoming school year by acting as a bridge to keep literacy and comprehension skills sharp. Also, it doesn't hurt that there are incentives to encourage our little bookworms to keep at it.
Who needs the library? Probably you! Below is just a small sampling of some of the people we serve on a daily basis.
