King County Library System Summer Reading Program: The King County Library System (KCLS) encourages King County residents of all ages to participate in its annual Summer Reading Program from June 1 to August 31. Reading is important for all ages and has been shown to decrease stress and increase empathy. It is especially important to keep children’s minds active and engaged during the summer to prevent learning loss while students are out of school. Start your summer reading adventure by downloading summer reading logs: Summer Fun for Ages Newborn to 5 and Summer Reading for All Ages.
