Summer Literacy at the Library

Earlier this month, Enoch Pratt Free Library announced their new fine-free policy, Free to Bmore, welcoming back thousands of Baltimoreans who were previously unable to access library resources due to library fines. Summer slide puts children at risk for falling behind and losing valuable learning time each school year. Free to Bmore will link even more of these students with programs and resources to encourage summer literacy. Here are a few to start with:

  1. Check out the Summer Challenge 2018! Earn prizes for reading and attending library events.
  2. Ask the librarian at your local branch what activities or camps are available for different age groups.
  3. Don’t be afraid to explore! Try checking out a different library branch or a new section of your local branch to keep reading fresh and exciting.
  4. Take books home! Let children choose books that interest them to motivate them to read for fun! Model positive reading behavior by checking out some books yourself - free of fines, free of worry!
