As parents, we all know how important summer learning is. There will be no “summer slide” in my house! Luckily, a modern Boca dad himself and our mayor, Scott Singer, agrees. He recently issued a proclamation declaring that June 1 – August 31 will be designated as Summer Reading 2022! This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities.”
The festivities begin with a free Kick-Off Party on Saturday, June 4, 2022 from 9:00am−Noon at the Spanish River Library, 1501 NW Spanish River Blvd. The whole family is invited to play games, enjoy food, listen to a live DJ, attend an Under the Sea Bubble Party, and much more.
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!

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!
The Boca Raton Public Library is a place of learning and discovery for residents of all ages. Adults are also encouraged to participate in Summer Reading to set a good example for their Boca kids. Reading helps adults improve memory, learn new things and enhance well being. We can all use that, right?
Get your kids signed up today, Boca moms! We all need something to do when it’s raining outside, right?
