One great way to keep your children reading is to have them join the Be Creative @ Fairhope Public Library summer reading program.

The Fairhope Public Library Summer Reading Program is a fun way to include reading and related activities into summer family time. It helps children maintain and improve reading skills.

Reading expert, Stephen Krashen, says:
Children read more when they listen to and discuss books.
Reading skills grow by reading.
Reading helps improve children's writing.

During the summer months:
Read to young children daily.
Read a chapter book to your school-age children by reading aloud one or two chapters every day.
Encourage your children to spend time reading and looking at books.
Talk with your children about what they are reading.
Summer programs are available for your child @
Fairhope Public Library.
 

Visit the Fairhope Public Library and ...
READ.  DISCOVER.  HAVE FUN!!!!!
