Catasauqua library: Your library: It’s all about the love of reading!

The library’s summer reading programs are all about giving our children a variety of educational and recreational experiences that will inspire and encourage them to become lifelong learners.

It should come as no surprise that reading is the foundation of that process.

According to the National Institute of Health, when children love to read, they are more likely to love to learn.
