SUMMER READING PROGRAMS
Summer Reading Programs
The Summer Reading Program for children, teens and adults, engages the entire community in the life-enhancing activity of reading.
Each year, Alameda County’s Summer Reading Game engages more than 12,000 children and teens in reading. On average, children who read no books over the summer lose 3 months in reading achievement during that time. By the time they are in the sixth grade, this reading loss translates to a full 18 months–significantly impeding academic progress and chances for later academic success. The Summer Reading Program provides a fun, low-cost–but highly effective–way to maintain, and often improve, reading skills over the summer.
