Summer Reading 2018

Summer Reading 2018

Why read during the summer?

  • Researchers have proven that reading increases vocabulary and that reading and writing skills are inextricably connected to each other. (If you're not sure what inextricably means, you should read more)
  • Good writers are good readers. Written and oral communication is most effective when you have a command of language and a broad vocabulary; reading gives you exposure to descriptive and rich vocabulary used in well-written and powerful phrases and sentences.
  • The accuracy and effectiveness of your communication is determined by your ability to read critically.
  • Reading can be one of the most satisfying and personal life-long habits you will ever develop.
  • Reading gives you knowledge and knowledge is power.

The average age of our library book collection is 1992. Some of our teachers weren't even born then. We have some work to do. Looking forward to doing some weeding and making some purchases.
