Free Webinar – Being Rational About Summer Reading

Time: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Place: Online at
Presenter: Scott Jarzombek, Executive Director, Albany Public Library
Cost: Free for ESLN members

Summer Reading is often a capacity-challenging exercise for many libraries. In 20**, Albany Public Library partnered with the school district and the Albany Promise to examine the program’s actual impact on the “summer slide.” The findings were not nearly as exciting as anyone expected. APL found out that the program does have an impact on students. However, that positive impact is overstated by the library community. We will look at how the library as an organization has changed its approach to summer reading and how other libraries are earnestly taking on the challenge of the summer slide.
