Keep Reading

If you haven’t signed your child up for the “Make a Splash” Summer Reading program, it’s not too late. Yes, it’s summer, and everyone wants a break (especially moms and dads). But that doesn't mean you can't read and have fun at the same time!
Did you know that research has shown that students who do not read during the summer can experience significant learning loss? On the other hand, children who are actively engaged in reading and learning enter the following school year with an advantage.
The Birmingham Public Library works to partner with parents, educators, and the community in motivating and helping children learn and succeed. Here are some of our resources online:
·        Read the Books not only offers a library list of books but also currently displays the summer reading list for Birmingham City Schools.
·        The “Make a Splash” site has "Tips on Raising a Reader.”
·        The Kids Catalog is specifically designed to help children simply and quickly find books.
Come visit and support your local branches. We’re much more than a storehouse for books.
