Thanks to a grant from the State Library of Kansas and the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), in partnership with Scholastic’s FACE program, 112 public libraries gave away books to children during summer reading programs.

“Adding to a child’s home library is extremely important in encouraging reading,” said State Librarian Jo Budler. “A home library can make books even more accessible and increase a child’s motivation to read.”

Parents can sign up kids for summer reading programs by visiting their local public library.

The State Library provides quality library services and resources through your local library, including downloadable ebooks (for adults and children), audiobooks, and online databases. To learn more visit www.kslib.info.
