Lexington, SC – The Summer Reading Program adventures have begun at Lexington County Public Library and will run through July 31. Studies show this program helps children and teens avoid the dreaded summer slide, when vital skills they’ve learned during the school year are forgotten over the summer months. This initiative could be even more helpful this year due to early school closures caused by COVID-19. Be proactive and allow summer reading to close the gap.
Imagine your story with the Library and tune in for virtual programs sure to keep the entire family entertained. We’ll be joined by some of our favorite authors, performers and presenters — Tom Poland, Porkchop Productions, Tim Sonefelt and Paulene Cruse. There will be book talks, theatrical performances, workshops, storytelling and more. Visit our summer reading webpage for additional information and a full list of online events at lexcolibrary.com/summerreading.
Did you know you can earn points just by attending our virtual programs? Be sure to track your entire family’s progress online to be eligible for prizes awarded in August. Although not required for participation, we also have grab and go bags, which include reading logs and fun activities, available curbside at all 10 locations for youth participants 18 or younger.
Call your local branch or visit us online to start your own summer reading adventure.
