📚Today starts Rapides Parish Library's SUMMER READING PROGRAM! And we have a challenge for you!📖

We want you to read 20 minutes every day this summer! ⏳📚

Why, you ask?
Because just 20 minutes of reading a day can provide exponential gains for a child’s ...exposure to language, the long-term amount of time engaged in text, and as a result a greater understanding of the world around them, leading to increased test scores. There are tons more benefits of reading for kids and adults, and they go far beyond just test scores. Reading just twenty minutes per day builds empathy for others, creates a strong vocabulary, and positively affects and boosts your mental and physical health.

Now the question is, CAN YOU DO IT???
A great way to keep track of your challenge to read 20 minutes a day is by joining the RPL Summer Reading Program to help track your reading and win great prizes along the way!

Have you heard of the "summer slide"?☀️📉

What is it? Research shows that kids who don’t practice reading skills during times when school is not in session can lose gains in ability made the previous academic year, thus sliding backwards in their knowledge and reading ...skills.

Tomorrow is the first day of the Rapides Parish Library's SUMMER READING PROGRAM! A great way to prevent the "summer slide"!

RPL promotes reading and literacy by offering access to books, programs, educational entertainers and presenters during the summer months to help encourage our communities to keep reading and reduce "summer slide".
