Take The Vista Library's Summer Reading Challenge
The Vista Library is taking part in San Diego County’s Summer Reading Challenge. All ages are invited to take the Challenge which runs from June 1 through August 31. This year’s Summer Reading Challenge theme is Reading by Design and open to all ages. Award prizes are provided to those who complete a goal of reading 10 books or 10 hours. Participants can sign up at sdcl.org/src or at the Vista Library and are able to track their goals online or pick up a paper reading log at any San Diego County Library branch. In addition, don’t miss out on the Vista Library’s Ronald McDonald’s “Book Time” show on June 20 at 10 am.
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages thousands of kids, teens, and adults to read and participate in library events each and every summer," said Deputy Director Susan Moore. "Our libraries are sanctuaries that provide access to endless inspiration and transformational experiences." Summer reading is particularly valuable to kids and teens as it encourages students to read over the summer to prevent the "summer slide"; reading during the summer keeps students from losing reading skills gained during the school year. Research shows that children who read four or more books during the summer score better on reading comprehension tests when they come back to school, compared to peers who don’t read over the summer.
