“Summer slump” is a phrase used to describe the digression students may make while they are out of school if they don’t read or engage academically. Because students throughout the state have already been at home for months due to the pandemic, there is concern that this phenomena will be even worse this year. Community members in Vernal are working to keep the kids in their community reading and learning despite all those months at home. 

The director of the Uintah County Library is asking visitors to limit time spent at the community hub to thirty minutes. Sam Passey said the library in Vernal is open weekdays and Saturday after being closed to the public because of coronavirus restrictions.
