The Indiana Department of Education has a new summer initiative called Hoosier Family of Readers. Along with this, they are providing free access to thousands of digital children’s books!!
The initiative invites children and adults to read every day this summer and to identify their Hoosier Family of Readers. A reading family can be any combination of caring adults and children. At the Children’s Desk at the Main Library or at any of our branch locations, pick up a bookmark with a place to record “Who” is in your Hoosier Family of Readers. We are also giving away pencils and stickers so be sure to ask for those too!
The Hoosier Family of Readers program encourages all “reading families” to read anything that interests you – including graphic novels, nonfiction books, magazines, and newspapers – whether online or in print. Reading is reading, no matter the format or genre.
