Summer Science at Your Library

summer scienceThe Wilsonville Public Library in Wilsonville, Oregon has developed a “Summer Science @ Your Library” program. Just as there’s a “summer slide” for reading skills, science skills will also decline over the summer if not used. The library is in the perfect position to help combat the deterioration of skills! You don’t even have to start a new program!

Science programming can easily combined with the summer reading program you are already host every summer. With this year’s slogan being “Dig Into Reading!” you are probably already having programs about plants and geology. Keep in mind that the 2014 summer reading theme is “Science,” so it’s a perfect opportunity to combine programming!

To get you started, the Wilsonville Library offers:

  • Quick Start Activities
  • Summer Science Guidebook
  • Programming for Preschool Story Times
