DoD-MWR Summer Reading programs are designed to make the library a
great place for kids to read, learn, and discover what’s available
for their enjoyment throughout the year. There’s also a serious side
to summer reading. Research has shown that reading over the summer
prevents summer reading loss. Studies also indicate students who read
recreationally outperformed those who don’t. Students read more when
they can choose materials based on their own interests. DoD-MWR
libraries are committed to supporting lifelong learning and
educational enrichment for all families.
With the theme "Dig Deeper" we encourage readers of all ages to dig
below the surface and discover everything from the science of everyday
things, to the envisioning of the future, discovering other cultures,
peering into nature and the environment, delving into the unknown and
exploring a treasury of knowledge. In partnership with iREAD Summer
Reading, library programs will offer fun ideas, incentives, and much
more for children, teens, and adults.
The benefits of summer reading are clear. National research finds that
students who participate in library summer reading programs scored
higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next
school year than those who did not participate. Our mission at DoD-MWR
Libraries is to provide the resources and experiences to bridge this
summer gap, while inspiring literacy and life-long learning.
