Summer Reading 2021

Frankfort Community Public Library and the branches in Michigantown, Rossville, and Mulberry announce the kick-off of our annual Summer Reading Program: Tails and Tales. The Summer Reading Program promotes literacy with several events and prizes available to community members of all ages.

Preventing Summer Learning Loss

A main goal of the SRP is to prevent summer learning loss. Research shows that, “by the summer after seventh grade, students lose on average 35% of their school-year gains in reading…and..50% of their school-year gains in math” (Kuhfield, M., NWEA, 2018). We care about the education and entertainment needs of all our community members and that is why, each year, we work to create quality programming and incentives especially for summertime.

Tails and Tales

The theme this year is “Tails and Tales” and we will be celebrating with pets, zoo animals, birds, and, of course, many wonderful stories. Events begin on June 7 and community members ages birth-adult are invited to participate. A library card is not required to join the fun and the program is free. We are partnered with several local businesses in order to offer prizes throughout the summer. Prize entries are earned by checking out books, attending programs (virtual or live), and submitting a book review. We are even giving away two grand prizes: brand-new tablets! Here are a few important dates to remember:
