Why Summer Boost?

Reading and learning during the summer has proven to benefit children as they return to school in the fall. Even a small amount of reading, just fifteen minutes a day, can be a great help to stop the "summer slide" — learning loss that occurs when children are out of school in the summer. The Summer Boost program at the West Fargo Public Library works to encourage children to continue reading and learning all summer long, so they enter the new school year ready to learn. Summer Boost takes all the elements you love from the library's past summer reading programs and elevates it to include even more fun for all ages.
