Children can check out library books, read and use the media center computers during the program.

Sean McSorley, 10, said he appreciates having those resources available.  

“I enjoy the reading so I can get ahead,” he said, adding he earns points for each book he reads in the Accelerated Reader program.

An estimated 15 families have attended the program on Monday nights, while just a few attend Tuesday morning events, Davis said.

She wants to see more participation because the program offers a valuable benefit.

“The goal is to keep their minds active over the summer,” Davis said.
