We know that children who read, succeed. But, did you know that children who don’t read during the summer can actually lose academic ground, coming back to school behind their classmates who read during the summer? This is known as the “Summer Slide.” Make sure that your children return to school ready to learn by signing them up for Lincoln City Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge.
Families can participate in the Summer Reading Challenge in several ways:
Online, using the Beanstack software
Using the traditional paper booklet
Using Beanstack and the paper booklet
Log your time and activities using the Beanstack Tracker App.
Summer Reading Challenge signup begins on May 24 and runs through July 31. Readers will track:
Time Spent Reading
Completed Reading Activities
Every child who completes the challenge will receive coupons from our generous sponsors, free admission to special events, and much more.
Elementary-aged readers will not want to miss the free special events at all library locations! Look for flyers at the library or visit https://lincolnlibraries.org for a full schedule.
