Halfway through summer is not too late to prevent reading loss

SEATTLE — As temperatures rise and summer break reaches the halfway mark, Let’s Read reminds parents there is still time to help prevent summer reading loss. The campaign encourages parents and children to read together over the summer months to ensure kids are ready for school in the fall.

Let’s Read is supported by the King County Library System, Seattle Public Libraries, United Way of King County, the Road Map Project and many other partners . The effort aims to provide tips, activities, book recommendations and additional library resources to help families keep reading. Let’s Read is an important part of a regional reading plan that recently earned an All-America City Award.
