This summer Durham County Library is celebrating a family of readers each week of Summer Reading, which runs from June 17 through August 12. This week’s family of readers are Lily, Andrea, and Zachary Mortensen.
Lily is 9 years old, Andrea is 6 years old, and Zachary is 2 ½. They visit East Regional Library, where their favorite books to read as a family are the Harry Potter and Fancy Nancy series and anything featuring animals. They’ve been visiting East Regional Library since Main Library has been closed for transformation.
Summer Reading at Durham County Library is free and open to people of all ages. This year’s theme is Build a Better World. Reading stretches the imagination, deepens our capacity to empathize with others, and helps students retain academic gains over the summer months.
Durham County Library encourages reading every day. Babies love books, too! It’s never too early to start reading together. Children, teens, and adults can earn prizes by reading, visiting each Durham County Library, participating in library programs, exploring a library database or electronic resource, and volunteering in the community.
To register for Summer Reading and learn more, visit your local library or check out DurhamCountyLibrary.org/SummerReading. Stop by the library to discover something new, participate in community, and help build a better world.
