Summer Reading For Kids

Library highlighting children’s literature

Garden City Public Library’s Children’s Department will be exhibiting “Highlights From Children’s Literature” through Aug. 28 in the library’s showcases located at 60 Seventh St., in Garden City. Kids of all ages are sure to enjoy seeing a variety of dolls and stuffed animals paired with coordinated books in this collection. Young readers are encouraged to join in this year’s collaborative “Fizz, Boom Read! 2014 Summer Reading Club” program. Come check out fun stuff for kids!

Summer reading programs began in the 1890s as a way to encourage school children to read during their summer vacation, use the library and develop the habit of reading. The benefits to readers in a summer reading program include: encouragement that reading become a lifelong habit; reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities; reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up; the program can generate interest in the library & books; and it being summer, the program can just be good fun and provide an opportunity for family time at the Garden City Public Library.

Exhibits are free and open to the public during regular library hours. Installation and removal dates are subject to change. For hours and directions, please call 516-742-8405 or visit www.gardencitypl.org.

Exhibit funding is provided by Friends of the Library.
