Benefits of Summer reading camp at Public Libraries

Reading is a stimulating and enriching activity for children. Reading not only helps them in developing their language skills but also helps in evolving their imagination. The earlier they start reading, the richer their vocabulary gets. When children start reading they begin having perceptions and visualize their thoughts in creative ways. Reading also helps in speech improvement and leads to a more confident expression.

Summer is a great time to continue the journey of exploring linguistics and also prevent summer learning loss. Almost 95% of public libraries offer Summer Reading Camps for K-8. A series of books are selected and children are given reading challenges for accomplishing desired number of books. They are rewarded which motivates them to further their reading.

Both classical and contemporary books are included to make summer reading educational and amusing journey for the children. Some libraries also have ‘Book-worm clubs’ which work on bringing out avid readers among children. These clubs aim to speed up the reading process with challenges on number of books in the time frame.
