This year, Kent District Library will take you on a Summer Wonder journey of reading, learning and exploring through the great outdoors right here in Kent County! KDL has teamed up with Kent County Parks to bring you a spectacular summer of outdoor discovery, scavenger hunts, STEAM activities and lots of fun for everyone.
Participate in Summer Wonder by picking up a Summer Wonder Workbook at any KDL branch or signing up online at kdl.beanstack.org. It’s free and includes adventures and prizes for all ages. KDL is the perfect place to keep summer learning alive and growing.
“Summer Wonder is back with more outdoor adventures than ever before,” said Kris Vogelar, Branch Programming and Outreach Specialist. “If your kids think summer learning is boring, Summer Wonder will certainly prove them wrong!”
Summer Wonder is a great opportunity to limit the “summer slide” that negatively affects learning between the end and start of the traditional school year. Extensive research shows that children involved in summertime reading programs sponsored by public libraries are more likely to maintain their academic skills, and in many cases do better on standardized tests.
