Every summer, as part of Durham County Library’s Summer Reading Program, we celebrate a reader from each of Durham County Library’s locations. This week we’re featuring Devin, who is 6 years old. Devin enjoys visiting Stanford L. Warren Branch Library.
Devin’s favorite thing about the library is programs. The books are great, too! Devin recommends Cork & Fuzz by Dori Chaconas, because it is funny. When Devin is at the library, he likes to read a lot of books! Devin also likes to learn at summer camp and is reading on a third grade level, after recently being promoted to the first grade.
Summer Reading at Durham County Library is free and open to people of all ages. This year’s theme is Libraries Rock! Devin says, “Libraries rock because the books I like are here, like Don’t Let Pigeon Drive the Bus! (Mo Willems), If You Give a Moose a Muffin (Laura Numeroff), and Clubhouse Mysteries (Sharon Draper).”
We also know that 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. If you haven’t been to Stanford L. Warren Branch Library, like Devin has, be sure to check it out! They have lots to offer, including Preschool Story and Craft Time, which is every Thursday at 10:30 a.m.
See you at the library!
