This summer Durham County Library is celebrating readers throughout Summer Reading. This week’s reader is Isaiah.
Isaiah is 5 years old. His family enjoys visiting Stanford L. Warren Branch Library, where their favorite book to read as a family is Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! by Dr. Seuss. They’ve been visiting Stanford L. Warren Branch Library since Isaiah was only 3 years old.
Isaiah’s favorite library memories include picking out books, reading with mommy, and playing with bubbles. Isaiah says, “I love reading because it makes me happy and gives me points.” Isaiah has been participating in Summer Reading all summer long, earning points for reading and winning prizes along the way. Isaiah is going to kindergarten and feels that reading is fun. He says, “Reading is good because it helps us learn things!”
Summer Reading at Durham County Library is free and open to people of all ages. Reading helps students retain academic gains over the long summer months. Plus, Isaiah’s right—reading can be fun!
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 the library, participating in programs, and using online resources.
This year’s Summer Reading theme is “Build a Better World.” 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.
