Make sum­mer read­ing a fam­ily af­fair. We all know that school aged chil­dren should keep read­ing through­out the sum­mer break to main­tain skills, but what about tod­dlers and par­ents, grand­par­ents and care-givers? The Haskell Free Li­brary in Stanstead Que­bec and Derby Line Ver­mont wants to help your whole fam­ily make read­ing a fun and im­por­tant part of daily life.
