Each library offers a fun Summer Reading Program with incentives to keep kids of all ages motivated and engaged over summer vacation. Many students will lose more than two months in reading achievement and most will lose two months of grade-level equivalency in math skills every summer. There will be information on the summer reading programs going on at the seven village libraries in Barnstable at this event. You may also check out each library's website for information on the individual programs. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
