Summer Reading by the Numbers

On Your Mark_EL purple01

As June approaches, libraries around the state are kicking off their 2016 summer reading programs with sports-related themes: “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” for children, “Get in the Game,” for teens, and “Exercise Your Mind” for adults. The State Library has put together a Summer Reading 2016 resource guide for libraries to use.

In 2015, more than 24,000 children and 6,000 adults participated in a summer reading program at a Wyoming public library. In June, July, and August, the circ desk sees a 13% monthly average jump from the rest of the year.
