Each year, Goleta Valley Library holds a Summer Reading Program to encourage children and teens to read during the summer months. This helps prevent “summer slide,” the loss of reading and academic skills over the summer. This year’s program, It’s Showtime at Your Library!, will run from June 7th – August 3rd. By reading and logging books, Summer Reading participants will be able to earn exciting prizes from local community donors. In addition, the library will host weekly performers and events throughout the program that are free and open to the public. Reading logs are available for pickup at Goleta Valley Library (500 N. Fairview Avenue) beginning June 7th.
