Camas, WA — The Camas Public Library officially began its Summer Reading Program, titled “Build a Better World,” and is open to young children, teens, and adults.
The purpose of the Camas Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is to encourage youth to read and participate in community activities during their school break. Youth who read during the summer will practice their comprehension skills, and are likely to start school in the Fall more prepared and ahead of their classmates.
The program measures reading time and community participation rather than number of pages or books. With this method, youth of all ages and abilities can accomplish their goals with comparable effort.
The program itself includes games, events, and weekly summer movies.
