Summer is an important time for students to keep reading and improve their language skills. Here are some ways to keep your child "hooked on books".
Our local Miller Branch of the Howard County Library is the “shining star” of the library system. Plan to take a family field trip there to discover their vast resources. While there take time to register your child(ren) for the summer reading club, On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! You can also register at any Howard County Library Branch. (Note: The Central Branch and the Elkridge Branch of the Library are closed for renovation this summer.)

Finally, a recommended book list for summer reading is coming home in Monday Folders. The lists are developed by Howard County Public School Library Media Specialists and Howard County Library Children's Instruction and Research Staff. The titles included are just a sampling of the books your child may enjoy reading during the summer. Many of the authors on the list have written more than one book. Check out some of those titles, too! Online versions of the book lists may be found at http://www.hcpss.org/academics/library-media/ (Links to an external site.)
