What is 103 years old and still going strong thanks to you? The Indianapolis Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, which is supported by donors to The

Indianapolis Public Library Foundation (see list below). Starting June 6 and lasting to July 30, the Library is offering free workshops, programs and great books for all ages. The theme this year is Camp Read S’more! Children and teens receive prizes for reading one, five, 10, 15 and 20 hours.

Research shows reading just 15 minutes daily helps combat the “summer slide,” or the decline in academic skills that can occur when children are out of school for extended periods. The Library holds the Summer Reading Program at Central Library, 23 branches and with partners at 100 youth-serving agencies through its bookmobile service.
