Oceans of Possibilities

This year, the program kicks off on Saturday, June 18, with preregistration available online on Wednesday, June 15. The 2022 Summer Reading Program is made possible by generous support from the Portage Health Foundation. Thank you, PHF!

The Portage Lake District Library and the Hancock School Public Library are thrilled to launch the 2022 summer reading program, Oceans of Possibilities. The program will see both libraries engage students and residents in summer reading activities all summer long.

Each year, libraries across the country host a summer reading program to keep children and families reading all summer long and to help prevent what educators call the summer slide. The summer slide is described as the tendency for students to lose reading achievement gains made the year prior if they are not reading over the summer.
