Why is Teen Summer Reading important?

  • Students need a high level of literacy to be successful in higher education and future employment and teens who participate in summer reading programs are shown to maintain or improve their reading skills over the summer months.
  • Members of the Teen Readers' Club are encouraged to read whatever they want in a variety of formats (books, magazines, graphic novels, audio books). Allowing free choice in reading materials makes reading more enjoyable (especially for struggling readers) and helps instill a life-long love of reading. Studies show that kids who read for fun often out-perform kids who don't in school.
  • Young people learn best when they are actively engaged in subjects they care about.
