That said, this year I am excited because my library is going to be open this summer - at least for one day per week. First off, I'm thrilled that my district sees the library as a key player in reading instruction in my school. Avoiding the "summer slide" is a district priority? Great! They see the library as the antidote? Even better! To me, this is a big win. Secondly, I'm stoked about the opportunity to channel some of the things that I find so motivating about The Level Up Book Club and apply them to my summer reading program for kids..
