"The library system is pleased to have this opportunity to provide library users with up-to-date equipment to meet the demands of an increasingly digital world", the release said.

Hazel Myers is devouring books. "I think the community really looks forward to that", Grossman said.

The Vermilion Parish Library will be hosting almost 50 programs to keep children active and reading throughout the summer.

It's taken her to the first zoo, the early slums of Chicago and John Deere country, guided by her mom, Natalie Myers of Urbana.

"So we want them focused on that muscle all during the summertime so that 1 - they don't regress 2 - that opens up all their doors ago so that they can continue with their education and 3 - they begin to love it and enjoy reading which is what we all want them to do", Dr. Robert adds. Those who are interested should check out the library's registration page. This session is created to introduce children to a short structured activity, playing in a group, and the magic of books.

Readers start at the bottom of Level 1, and color in one box of a reading log for every 10 minutes reading or listening to books.

For more information, contact the library at 270-338-4760. The program runs from June 1 to August 12 this year. Chess is played at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday on the second floor. Kickoff for the program will happen at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the Alton Square branch. Receive a chance at the grand prize for every three additional books completed.

You can register at this site. "So, participating in summer reading helps beat that summer slide by encouraging them to read and making it fun", Tracy McPeck, a county librarian, said of the reading program. They helped get the program underway at the library by playing songs using an array of musical instruments to entertain children and their parents.

"After the pizza party, that's usually the biggest event we have all year", said Moran.

All programs are free of charge. Reading together is the most important way for children to learn to read independently.

"The idea is to keep kids reading during the summer, which is a huge indicator of success", said Marguerite Moran, library director. Betty was a grade school teacher in Geneva and Aplington and a longtime volunteer at the library.

Children and teenagers will earn prizes by keeping track of minutes read, activities completed and library events they attend.

Susan McKinney, the librarian at the St. Joseph Township-Swearingen Memorial Library, has been there nearly 28 years and has seen summer reading grow every year.

She explained that island families would travel and forget their children's paper log at home. "Reading, like anything else, takes practice". The kids do the reading at home.

"I think it will encourage me to try new books and to spend more time reading than I normally would", she said. "During the school year, they have to read books for school".
