CPL kicks off summer reading club; registration now open


May 5, 2014: Summer break for children means many things—trips to the local pool, playing outside with friends, summer sports, and family vacations. Summer break can also mean the “summer setback,” as children can lose up to two months of reading achievement when school is not in session. 


To combat the summer setback, Cleveland Public Library (CPL) is encouraging children to make reading a part of their summer rituals by registering for CPL’s Summer Reading Club.


“Summer reading is a crucial tool to combat against the summer setback, and our dedicated staff will be in the local schools signing up children before summer break begins” said Felton Thomas, Director of CPL. “By making the summer reading club fun and full of activities and opportunities to win prizes, CPL encourages children to make reading a regular part of their day, keep their reading levels strong, and prepare them for the next school year.”  


The 2014 Summer Reading Club encourages young readers to use their sleuthing skills with “Get a Clue: Read!” exercises. In addition to basic reading, other activities offer opportunities for creativity, engagement, and fun. For example, summer readers can win prizes by visiting their local library branch and solving weekly “mysteries.”


After reading 10 books and completing 10 activities, participants will receive a voucher for four free tickets to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on August 9th, and be entered into the Mystery Grand Prize drawing.
