Fall River Library Let the Games Begin
Fall River Valley Library launches its “Let the Games Begin!” summer reading program on June 21st. The library will host a range of free activities for children that encourage and support a love of reading while the children participate in fun and challenging games. Participants also can win prizes for reading books throughout the summer.

There’s also a serious side to summer reading. Research has shown that reading over the summer prevents a loss in reading fluency. Studies also indicate students who read recreationally out-performed those who don’t. Students read more when they can choose materials based on their own interests,”

Registration continues through June 17th, 2016. To learn more about the summer reading program, at the library, call 336-6445.
