We've Got the Guide to "Stopping the Summer Slide"

Throughout the summer, we've been sharing tips, tricks, and tools to help parents, community centers, and summer schools maintain literacy and stop the summer slide. Now, we're pleased to announce the publication of our "Stopping the Summer Slide" eBook! 

Go Places with Reading

Did you know children who read over the summer are less likely to lose the vital reading skills learned during the school year? It's true! Encouraging your child to read is not only important, but also a great way to have fun and bond! This summer, why not take a reading road trip? You can really go places with reading!

This school-to-community partnership aims to boost summer reading

A strong history of collaboration exists between the Midland County Public Libraries and the Midland Independent School District in Texas. Project Literacy, supported by Wells Fargo and the Midland Reporter-Telegram, brings nationally renowned authors to Midland schools and libraries each September and provides a free book for each 1st grader in Midland County. Each spring the library works with administrators, principals, and teachers to host thousands of local students on field trips to the libraries and the Midland County Historical Museum. For the last two years the library has hosted a district-wide Student Art Show, exhibiting nearly 1,000 pieces of art. We are always looking for new and better ways to create an exceptional educational climate for local students.
