OPA Libraries Summer Reading

Summer 2014

Summer Reading

We encourage students to continue reading over the summer. Research shows that reading can help prevent loss of skills over the summer.

This summer we will be opening up the Elementary school library, so students can check books out over the summer. The library will be open for checking out every other week Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 am to 11:30 am on the following dates:

June 10th and 12th

July 8th and 10th

July 22nd

August 5th and 7th
