“With the school year winding down, things are just about to pick up at Yolo County libraries.Each year, Summer Reading Programs take place at various branches, encouraging reading even though classes are out.”Summer reading is so important as it works to combat summer slide, loss of learning that occurs over the summer,” explained Woodland Library Services director Greta Galindo.In summer of 2016, over 8,000 Californians signed up for a public library summer reading program and more than 1.5 million Californians attended summer reading events and activities. The Yolo County Library joins libraries across the nation and state of California to encourage adults, youth and families to read over the summer. The Summer Reading Program is a project of the California Library Association and part of California’s statewide summer reading outcomes.”
