Grand Rapids Public Schools Library Media Services is proud to be an educational team member that strives to create a dynamic environment for a diverse community of learners. We support emerging technologies while fostering a love of reading and learning. We are a pathway for students to become life long learners and informed 21st century global citizens.
Summer shouldn’t mean taking a break from learning, especially reading. Studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read actually gain skills. Efforts should be made during the summer to help children sustain reading skills, practice reading and read for enjoyment. Summer reading is very important in developing life-long reading habits, in maintaining literacy skills and in promoting reading for pleasure.
Studies have repeatedly shown that children who continue to read during the summer months perform better when school resumes in the fall.
