Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) —There is summer vacation and children are out of school, but that doesn’t mean they have to stop learning.
The Omaha Public Library hosts its annual summer reading program almost this year, yet encourages families to visit one of the twelve places directly.
Marketing manager Emily Getzschmann said the program was planned before the number of COVID-19 began to decline in Douglas County.
Nonetheless, Getzschmann said these programs would keep children in the learning zone during the summer vacation and prevent brain drain.
“The point of the summer reading program is to help prevent slipping in the summer when the brain isn’t fully challenged during the summer or isn’t exercising as much as during the school year. We help keep our imagination active and our learning and involvement, ”says Getzschmann.
The goal is to reach 10 hours of reading by the end of the program, which runs from June 1st to July 31st.
Once you reach your goal, your kids will win free prizes such as free tickets to the Storm Chasing game.
