•  Summer is almost here, which means it's time for SUMMER READING at the Wichita Public Library. Studies show that students who don't engage in learning during the summer can actually see a decline in academic progress (called the summer slide) when they return to school in the fall. Every summer, the Wichita Public Library encourages kids to continue learning by providing various events and a summer reading program that allows students to have fun activities and earn great prizes. It's an easy way to help your student continue reading while also providing some FUN and FREE activities around town!
