Marion library sets summer program
The Marion City Library is having its annual Summer Reading Program for preschool through eighth grade beginning June 15 through July 17.
This year?s theme is ?Every Hero Has a Story.?
Preschool children who have 20 books read to them will receive a prize.
Kindergarten through eighth-grade children will receive prizes for books read for different goals.
According to library staff, studies show many children forget some of what they?ve learned over the summer, which could mean losing up to two months of what they learned during the school year.
For that reason the Summer Reading Program is important for children to retain reading and math skills.
