The Oakland Public Library

is a fun way to include reading and related activities in summer family time. It helps children maintain and improve reading skills.
One great way to keep your children reading is to have them join the Dig into Reading Summer Reading Program at the Oakland Public Library during July.
Monday 2-4 Activities and guest speakers.
Tuesday 10 am Preschool Storytime.
Wednesday movie night.
Reading expert Stephen Krashen says:
Children read more when they listen to and discuss books.
Reading skills grow by reading.
Reading helps improve children’s writing.
During the summer months:
Read to young children daily.
Read a chapter book to your school-age children by reading aloud one or two chapters every day.
Encourage your children to spend time reading and looking at books.
Talk with your children about what they are reading.
Ask your library about programs for children.
Stop in the library today with your child and register for Dig into Reading.
