Why are summer reading programs important for children? Research has shown that kids experience learning loss over the summer and reading just 5 books over the summer can prevent it. Letting kids select their own books encourages summer reading and at Tacoma Public Library we have books, audiobooks, and graphic novels for all ages and interests.

Tacoma Library’s Summer Reading Challenge starts June 11th and we have a program for kids, teens, and adults. Get the whole family reading this summer and have fun while preventing summer learning loss!
