With this year’s theme “Build a Better World”, Beaverton families spent lots of time reading and learning this summer. More than 5400 kids and 2100 teens participated in this year’s summer reading program which is sponsored by the Beaverton Library Foundation.
“Children who read through the summer months are less likely to start school behind in the fall” noted Youth Services Manager Victoria Campbell. “The support that we receive from the Beaverton Library Foundation allows us to offer a world-class summer reading program for local kids and their families. We couldn’t do it without the Foundation’s partnership.”
