The Geauga County Public Library Summer Reading Program runs June 1 to July 31. Geauga children, young adults and adults can participate by logging their reading, earning prizes and participating in the library’s summer reading themed programs, activities and events.

GCPL is hosting a Summer Reading Kickoff on June 3 at the Geauga County Fairgrounds. Join the library and its mascot, Rascal the Racoon, for games, crafts, food, a Geauga County Library Foundation book sale and fun while celebrating the joys of reading and lifelong learning.

Summer reading is especially important for school age children and young adults. It is well documented that students who continually read over the course of their summer break maintain as well as improve the skills they learned during their previous school year, while students who do not read fall victim to the “summer slide,” or the decrease is reading proficiency experienced over the summer due to a lack of reading.
