It's time to think about summer reading!

Numerous studies have shown that summer reading programs help ensure that school children retain reading and learning skills over the summer break.

Catch the Beat, the Northfield Public Library's children’s summer reading program will start June 13th for “read to me kids” through 5th grade.
The purpose of this summer reading program is to have fun and to keep kids reading this summer. It is free and open to all.
"Reading goal booklets" can be picked up at the library beginning the week of June 5. We're encouraging kids to start setting a weekly reading goal and START READING! They'll earn a prize for every goal they meet, and they'll also have a chance to earn prizes at the hour-long weekly programs!

The program schedule is attached, and also available on the library's website at  Remember, reading over the summer is important and also fun!
