Libraries around the state are beginning children’s summer reading programs to help prevent children’s literacy skills from regressing during the school break.

As we head toward summer we want to know what you’re reading. What’s on your nightstand or device right now?  Is there a book that has had a big impact on you? Which books are you looking forward to reading? Perhaps you’d like to tell us a personal story connected to a favorite book. We’d love to hear about books in the adult, young adult & children’s categories. One suggestion or many are welcome.

UPR listeners are avid readers, so our periodic question to you isn’t if you’re reading, but what are you reading? We hope you’ll share your booklist with us and we’ll compile a UPR list and post it on www.upr.org  You can share your booklist by email to upraccess@gmail.com or on Twitter @upraccess. We’re also asking if you have any suggestions for beach or camping or summertime reading. And what do your children read during the summertime?

Libraries throughout Utah are preparing summer reading programs to help students stay connected. Depending on where you live, programs often include more than just reading books. Some programs may also incorporate technology and the use of art to educate and entertain.

Melinda Barlow, a librarian at the Uintah County Library in Vernal, wants to see the children in her community reading throughout the summer.
