Let’s see how much Columbia City REALLY reads

It's a fact: Research shows that children who read as few as 4 or 5 books during the summer experience less summer setback, and research also shows that a summer reading loss of 3 months accumulates to a 2 year gap by the time children reach middle school.

That's why the Seattle Public Library has offered a children's Summer Reading Program for the past 92 years. But summer reading is not just for kids, so there are fun incentives for teen and adults who read during the summer as well.
