If you are a parent or guardian and concerned about learning losses while your child is out of school, the library can help. Our online Summer Reading Program starts at the beginning of June, encouraging kids to read throughout the summer to earn points and badges. Looking for book ideas? Novelist K-8 Plus has suggestions for titles or authors that are similar to kids’ favorites. How about something more academic? Learning Express School Center has tutorials in math, English, and other topics for older elementary, middle, and high school students. Encourage kids to learn a foreign language with Pronunciator, which includes many kid-friendly courses specifically for early learners (3-6) and young learners (7-12).
As a parent, maybe you want to discover how to best support your child’s learning. Six-week instructor-led Gale Courses start soon which will give you background on child development and suggestions for encouraging literacy and reading. Check out “Ready, Set, Read!” and “Enhancing Language Development in Childhood,” for example. Just use your library card to sign up and start learning.
