Summer Reading 2020 is Imagine Your Story at the Boca Raton Public Library

As parents, we all know how important summer learning is. There will be no “summer slide” in my house! Luckily, Modern Boca Dad and Mayor, Scott Singer, agrees. He recently issued a proclamation declaring that June 1 through July 31 will be designated as Summer Reading 2020! This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story” Residents are also welcome to participate in the over 100 programs and classes for all ages at the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). I can definitely appreciate some free summer fun!

Imagine Your Story

Prevent the “Summer Slide”

Public libraries play a critical role in providing a bridge for academic skills for students over the summer months. This is to help prevent the “summer slide,” during which students may lose educational achievements made over the previous school year. To combat this, the Boca Raton Public Library is presenting an exciting summer of educational initiatives!

Reading helps adults improve memory, learn new things and enhance well being. We can all use that, right?
