Summer Reading at RML

Hey there! Did you know that kids tend to lose significant knowledge in reading and math over summer break? It's called the summer slide, and it can have a snowball effect as kids experience subsequent skill loss each year. But don't worry, you can help your children beat the summer slide by bringing them to the library for some fun programs and encouraging them to check out books, backpacks, and other cool items!
Plus, you can sign up for Summer Reading on Beanstack by clicking the image below. It's a fantastic way to keep your kids engaged and excited about learning throughout the summer. And if you don't have the app yet, no problem! You can find links to download it for Android or Apple below. Let's beat the summer slide together!

June 1 - July 31
