Research shows that children who participate in summer reading programs improve their reading skills. Whether your children/grandchildren are participating in a formal reading program or reading on their own, faculty and staff are welcome to check out books for children and teens from the Library’s Curriculum Materials Center. The Center holds classics, as well as newly published books, including picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction. Come in and check out your favorite titles! For assistance in selecting books, please consult Carol H. Sibley, Curriculum Center Librarian, or any of the Reference librarians.
