Summer Reading for Kids

About Summer Reading

Summer reading starts June 1st at the Aloha Community Library! From June through August we will offer a variety of virtual events, bi-monthly take and make kits, and in-person outdoor storytimes at Mountain View Champions Park. Check our calendar for updates and more information about summer programs!

Reading Logs

Pre-readers (those who are reading with help) and readers (those who can read independently) are encouraged to complete reading logs that track time read over the summer. Turn in as many as you like, either virtually by sending a copy or photo to info@alohalibrary.org or at the library during open hours.  Each reading log submitted is an entry to win a gift card in our monthly prize drawing, and your ticket to a free book at the end of the summer! Reading logs will be available to download here or pick up at the library starting June 1st. No registration required. Just start reading!

Visit the Teen Summer Reading page for programs for ages 10 through 18 (entering 6th through 12th grade).

Why is Summer Reading Important?

Children who do not read over the summer can experience learning loss, losing valuable skills and knowledge gained during the school year throughout the summer months. Research shows that those who participate in their local library’s summer reading program significantly improve their reading skills and are better equipped to retain what they learned at school. Help prevent the summer slide and read with the Aloha Community Library!
