Summer Reading Program at Edgefield County Libraries

libraryDig Into Reading! is a vacation reading program for children in Edgefield County running from June to August 12th. Children may register for the reading program at any of the libraries in the county or at the Bookmobile. Children completing the reading requirements will receive a hand puppet and a certificate.

Don’t forget tweens and teens! Beneath the Surface is a vacation reading program for rising sixth to twelfth graders that runs alongside Dig into Reading! For the first time Tweens and Teens may register for the reading program at any Edgefield County location or on the Bookmobile. Teens completing the requirements will receive a pair of ear buds and a chance to win a Kindle.

Research has shown that students who do not read during the summer lose important skills that they have to re-learn during the next school year. The summer reading program is a proven method to preventing this skill loss. The incentive based program and events provide learning opportunities while fostering a lifelong love of the library and reading.
