Fostering book love in summer

When the public libraries closed their doors in March, we didn’t realize how long of a haul we were in for. Never again will we take for granted the thrill of picking out anything we want for free at our neighborhood library branch.

Libraries can reopen in Phase 3 of Gov. Jay Inslee’s reopening plan, and there’s no telling when that will happen. While we can’t enjoy the free AC just yet, we’re counting on the libraries for summer reading programs to help our kids foster a love of books, entertain themselves and ward off the summer slide.

We miss the library. We hope to be back in there soon. In the meantime, check this summer's digital offerings from Seattle-area library systems by using the arrows above the image.
