Explore Summer 2017

by Debbie Lagasse 5th May 2017

Students are invited to join Sno-Isle Libraries Explore Summer program, “Build a Better World”. Explore Summer is designed to help students maintain or improve reading skills to prevent the summer slide. Our program also encourages youth to discover books they enjoy to make reading fun and rewarding.


Research has shown that students who join summer library programs keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.


Here are the simple steps:



  • Read and track 10 hours on a paper log or online through Beanstack.


  • Read 10 hours to win! Show the completed log, paper or online, to library staff, then choose a free book.


Sno-Isle Libraries cares about the students and families in our communities. Explore Summer will keep children reading and learning all summer! Families will also discover many free events at their local library throughout the summer to keep their kids engaged in the joy of learning.


Please click below on our online Power Point that can be shared with your students and families. We know books build better readers so let’s “Build a Better World” together this summer!



Please contact me if you have any questions, or if you would like me to present at a family night or PTA meeting about our Explore Summer program and the importance of summer learning.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
