Reading is Succeeding:

Reading IS succeeding!  SCCLD has a tremendous summer planned filled with opportunities for all ages to read, learn and have fun June 1 – July 31 at the library. Reading is one of the best ways to learn something new or expand on earlier knowledge.  Students who read more often and for fun do better in school and become better readers, spellers and writers. Reading also helps build critical thinking skills. Adults who pick up a book may find that reading can enhance empathy and lead to greater understanding of other people, as well as help explain other points of view. So come on into the library and join Reading by Design to help you read and succeed in all kinds of ways this summer.

Lunch and Learn Program:
This summer, three south county locations: Gilroy and Morgan Hill libraries and a special stop for SCCLD’s Bookmobile, will participate in the Lunch and Learn Program - giving free lunches to children ages 0-18. By offering a safe and positive environment that provides not only a nutritional meal but also access to books, interactive learning resources and engaging educational activities throughout the summer, SCCLD, in partnership with local agencies including the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Silicon Valley YMCA, hopes to make a lasting impact on the summer learning experiences of local children, ultimately helping them start the next school year ready to learn.
