Find a Book This Summer - Kentucky!

Published: 5/17/2013 9:42 AM



Summer Reading Programs at local Kentucky public libraries provide a wonderful opportunity for students to maintain reading skills. This year Kentucky’s public libraries are partnering with the Kentucky Department of Education to provide tools to assist in summer reading selections.

 

 

Teachers and parents are encouraged to help children use “Find a Book, Kentucky” (http://lexile.com/fab/ky) to build personal reading lists for summer reading and then locate their selections at their school or public library or at a local bookstore. “Find a Book, Kentucky” uses the widely-adopted Lexile® measure to match a reader with books that will provide the right level of challenge to support reading growth. School and Public Librarians are ready to assist children and their parents as they make summer reading selections.
For more information about specific activities, contests, and reading events for the Summer Reading Program in your county, contact your local public library (http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/Pages/LibraryDirectory.aspx). Download the Parent Flyer for more information about The Lexile® Framework for Reading and “Find a Book, Kentucky.”
