This summer Durham County Library is celebrating a family of readers each week of Summer Reading, June 17 through August 12. This week’s family of readers are Addison and Madelyn Daryani.
Addison is 8 years old, and Madelyn is 4 years old. They visit South Regional Library, where their favorite book to read as a family is On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman. They’ve been visiting South Regional Library since Addison was only 1 year old.
One of their favorite library memories is when the girls’ mom used to bring Addison to Baby Lapstitters when Addison was only 1 year old. They have been fans of the library for their whole lives! The whole family loves to visit South Regional Library and read lots of books together.
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.
