Reading is the foundation for all sorts of literary events during the 2017 "Build a Better World" summer reading program.
Registration opens next Monday for the program, which runs from Monday, June 5, until Thursday, July 27. More information about the event is available at the library and on the library's website.
"Teachers will tell you that children have a summer slide because they are not reading as much so their reading skills start to decline", McHugh said. Woodland kids can take advantage of the Summer Reading Program, set to return in June.
Some of the planned activities for the "Build a Better World" Summer Reading Program include clubs like Cursive Class, Chess Club, Art League, Minecraft meet-up, and more.
All programs are free of charge.
The St. Bernard Parish Library has just the program to hit the nail on the head for a summer of fun.

In addition to attending lots of fun programs, St. Bernard Parish Library readers will have the opportunity to win prizes by completing their game sheets.
The second part of the SRP is about programs and activities for all ages.
