Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) will provide summer reading activities for all ages at select sites in Lancaster County beginning Tuesday, June 2. All sessions are free and open to the public, and no preregistration is required. Programs will be presented through Thursday, July 23 at these sites:
At Waverly Elementary School, programs will be presented from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Tuesdays, beginning Tuesday, June 9.
Summer reading program materials will be available for children, teens and adults. Library staff will provide a storytime, a craft activity and books for children to check out. Incentives include free food from Runza and TCBY, a free pass to the Children's Museum and discounts at the Nebraska State Fair.
"Our Summer Reading Program encourages children and their families to read, learn and explore topics of interest during the summer months," said Vicki Wood, LCL Youth Services Supervisor. "One hundred years of research shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer than they do at the beginning. So it's important for them to engage in educational activities during the summer to prevent any learning losses."
