School is starting to wind down and parents are beginning to look for ways to keep their child's reading skills up for the summer.  Did you know that on average, children lose about two months of grade level equivalency in reading and math over the summer?  This loss is typically referred to as "summer slide."

The librarians at Roselle Public Library are a great resource to help
prevent "summer slide."  READ-2-GETHER is an amazing program which we offer during June for children going into grades 1-3 in the fall who may not be reading at grade level and need to practice to maintain or improve their reading skills.  Children are paired up with teens who are instructed on how to work with the younger children while being supervised by our wonderful Youth Services staff.

READ-2-GETHER is held for four weeks in June from 6:30-7:30 PM.  There are two nights to choose from - Monday or Thursday.  The program begins on June 3 and runs through June 27.  Children will read together with their teen buddies for 20 minutes, then receive a snack and participate in a fun activity.  Spots in the program are limited and registration began on May 6, so stop by or call us at 630-529-1641 *351 to register.
