Winner of the Waldinger Cup

The Henry Waldinger Memorial Library is offering four summer reading club programs for children from Birth to Grade 12:

  • New Recruits Children's Summer Reading Club
  • Rookie Readers Children's Summer Reading Club
  • Book Detectives Children's Summer Reading Club
  • Get a Clue ... Solve a Crime Young Adult Summer Reading Club

The State Board of Regents and State Education Commissioner Richard Mills are encouraging all children to participate in summer reading programs being offered at the library.  “ Reading during the summer is important for everyone, …” Regents Chancellor Robert M. Bennett said. “It helps children keep and even improves the reading skills they’ve developed during the school year. And some studies show that children who don’t read during the summer lose skills by fall. Summer reading can help close the achievement gap.”

“Children need to keep reading through the summer so they don’t have to catch up on their reading skills when they return to school in the fall” State Education Commissioner Richard Mills said. “When children read throughout the summer, they become better readers and better learners. I urge families to take advantage of the free reading program offered this summer at all of the State’s public libraries.”
