Put reading first,
with 20 minutes a day spent reading or being read to this summer:

  1. Sign up the whole family for the summer  reading program offered at the Calhoun County Library. (sign up to track your reading online).
  2. Visit the library again and again this summer. Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read yourself or to your young child. 
  3. Set a goal of reading 20 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through the day. Use the online games and track your reading to unlock cool new game levels, activities and more!
  4. Make reading fun all winter long!
