Library staff can obtain a free and ready-to-use program kit focused on health topics for their summer reading program on this year’s theme A Universe of Stories. The Summer Health Reading Program engages children to explore literacy through fun and interactive science-based activities.
The program kit includes helpful guides, activity plans, promotional materials, and health information resources your library can use to have a successful summer reading in your community.
You can access the kit and resources at nnlm.gov or by clicking on the links below.
The materials are part of NNLM’s campaign to supply libraries with materials and programming ideas based on national health observances like National Senior Health & Fitness Day or Americans with Disabilities Act Day. The selection of available materials will be updated monthly as new health observances approach. If you would like to be informed on upcoming health observances, go to https://nnlm.gov/all-of-us/national-health-observances#toc-3 or sign up for our CEN newsletter for monthly updates.
