Summer Reading 2024 is coming soon!

Summer Reading Adventures Await You and the Whole Family at Southeast Oklahoma Library System. Your local library is the place to be this summer! You will see activities, books, and programs that center around the 2024 Summer Reading theme, Adventure Begins at Your Library.

All 16 libraries and our Bookmobile will be hosting a variety of activities during the summer, including educational programs, reading challenges, craft projects, story times, performances, and more.

 

Summer Reading Prevents the Summer Slide

For young people, Summer Reading is more than just fun. It actually helps prevent the summer learning slide. Children who do not read and do not continue learning during their summer vacations can lose two months of achievement and fall behind in school. Keeping young people reading and learning during their summer vacation is key to the future success of students.

To enhance your local Summer Reading program, here's some more resources that parents can use to help their children keep learning during their summer vacations:
