A M E S S AG E F R O M YO U R D I R E C TO R Greetings!

Summer is an amazing time at Norfolk Public Library (NPL). This year’s Summer Reading Program (SRP) is all about Reading by Design, inspired by artists, authors, builders, illustrators, architects and everyone who helps to make this world an exciting and dynamic, livable and accessible place.

What a great theme this is for us at NPL this year, as we’re currently renovating Horace C. Downing Branch, under construction with the new Broad Creek Anchor Branch and planning the new Southside Branch! We’re literally living this year’s SRP program and hope you will take advantage of these great programs as well as see these projects as they come to life. Online registration for SRP begins June 24 at norfolkpubliclibrary.org. The program runs until August 5 and all ages are welcome to participate, from babies to adults. Participation is easy – simply read books, attend free events, and earn prizes and incentives along the way! Research consistently shows the benefits of summer reading finding that students actively engaged in a summer reading program scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the new school year versus those who did not participate. In order to help prevent “summer slide,” or when students score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer break than they did at the start of summer, NPL offers a wide range of activities for all ages that are sure to keep kids engaged in both reading and learning. Parents, it’s equally important for you to read over the summer, too! You help set the example, so we include an adult SRP with your own prizes and chances to get involved in new activities. NPL has an extensive digital collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, TumbleBooks (eBooks for kids) and digital magazines that are free and accessible 24/7 with your NPL library card! For more information about the Summer Reading Program, call the NPL Youth Services Department at 757-664-7328 ext. 347 or 349. For library updates and the latest summer reading news, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter! Don’t forget to tell us what makes summer reading special for you – use #itsmyNPL.
