Reading can be one of the many fun activities children choose to fill their summer time. Research has shown it is also much more!

This summer, take your child to participate in the summer programs happening at any of the “Mighty 5” libraries in our district.

Please Note: Your child will NOT be receiving a Summer Reading log from William O. Schaefer. The children can visit any of the “Mighty 5″ libraries in our district to register for summer reading and pick up a reading log. Please have your child bring their Summer Reading Log to school with them in September.
